Problem: If the following solutions are mixed, is the resulting solution acidic, basic, or neutral?65.0 mL of 0.0500 M HClO4 and 40.0 mL of 0.0750 M NaOH

FREE Expert Solution

HClO4 → strong acid

NaOH → strong base

Reaction:

HClO4 + NaOH → NaClO4 + H2O

moles HClO4=65.0 mL×10-3 L1 mL×0.0500 mol HClO4L

moles HClO4 = 0.00325 mol
