We are provided with a complete and a net ionic equation for the reaction that takes place between NaCl and AgNO3 and we have to determine the number of moles and mass of NaCl.


We will solve this problem through these steps:

  • Find the number of moles of AgNO3 using the formula for molarity.
  • Make a mole-to-mole comparison using the balanced chemical equation to find the number of moles of NaCl in titrated samples.
  • Convert the moles of NaCl to mass (g) using the formula mass of NaCl.

Problem Details

Fully balanced equation: AgNO3 + NaCl → AgCl + NaNO 3

Net ionic equation: Ag+ + Cl - → AgCl

Volume of (.0100 M) AgNO3 to titrate bay water samples:

March: 7.3 mL

April: 4.46 mL

1) Using the balance equation, calculate the average number of moles of NaCl in each of the titrated samples.

2) Calculate the average number of grams of NaCl in each titrated samples.
