Matter exhibits chemistry. Chemistry is the study of atoms and molecules, their interactions with each other as well as the properties that arise from this interplay. Chemistry is all around us, in you, in me and in all the products which are on display on the shelves of a super market. Often people associate chemists with Jekyll and Hyde, or Frankenstein. Not all chemicals are bad (see Natural … Continue reading Chemistry Outreach

A titration problem

If 525 mL of 0.80 M HCl solution is neutralized with 315 mL of Sr(OH)2 solution what is the molarity of the Sr(OH)2? The molarity of Sr(OH)2 is 0.67 M Acids and Bases neutralize each other. Strontium hydroxide will neutralize Hydrochloric acid to produce a salt and water. The reaction will be Sr(OH)2 +2HCl ——> SrCl2 + 2H2O. Volume of Strontium Hydroxide is 315 mL Volume of Hydrochloric acid is 525 mL … Continue reading A titration problem
