1. Hi, can someone please help me really stuck on these 2 questions....think I might have figured out the first one but seems kinda wrong.

A chemist neutralised 25.0 cm^3 0.200 mol. dm^-3 HCL with slaked lime

Ca(OH)2 + 2HCL -> CaCl2 + 2H2O

1)how many moles of HCL were neutralised?

2)Calculate the mass of Ca(OH)2 that neutralises this HCL

Im thinking for 1:
mol= (cm/1000) x conc

So I would have mol= (25/1000) x 0.200 = 0.005

But then again the question is in mol.dm so I think I might be wrong...

This question is seriously easy. You should be ashamed of yourself. It is easy to work out moles of acid, you know the ratio and therefore moles of alkali which were neutalised, then simply apply g=Mr*moles.

2) 0.005 moles of Calcium hydroxide has reacted....and the RMM of that is 40+(16*2)+2= 74

moles x RMM = mass
0.005 x 74 = 0.37 grams

Thank you *and thank you for not being insulting with your reply too*
5. and the mass of CA(OH)2 is just half that. unless there's some trickery about it. Which there isn't so far as i can see... and i look hard.. and usualy find it where there isn't any...

yeah....i forgot the ratio was 1:2 for CA(OH)2 : HCL....so the mass is half of what i wrote before..

Ok thanks again
Do you still need help with the first question or can you manage it now?
