# Calculate the percent Lithium cabonate by mass in the carbonate solution?

#### blitz

A quantity of 25.0 mL of 6.0 M HCL solution is added to a 11.50g sample of an aqueous solution of lithium cabonate. The carbon dioxide gas that is generated is collected over water at 20.0 celsius and an atmospheric pressure of 725 torr. When the gas levels are equalized, the volume of the gas is found to be 225 mL. Calculate the percent lithium cabonate by mass in the carbonate solution. PLEASE SHOW ME HOW TO DO THIS. #### blitz

use the pv=nRT equation to calculate n the number of mols of CO2 in the 0.225 l of gas.Correct by subtracting the mol of water in the gas.Each mol of CO2 = 1 mol of Lithium carbonate.Convert the final n to gms by multiplying by MW of compound. Find % in sample.Post your answers.The vapor pressure of water at 20 deg C=17.5 mm Hg

Starting to get scared because no one is replying. You need to wait at least 24 hours before getting an answer usually, because not everyone is available 24/7 to be able to be on the site all the time! And the community is quite small right now, so it's not as easy to get at least someone here all the time.
