We're being asked to calculate the molarity of Ca(OH)2.
We're given the unbalanced reaction: Ca(OH)2(aq) + HBr(aq) → CaBr2(aq) + H2O(l)
Balancing the reaction:
Ca(OH)2(aq) + 2 HBr(aq) → CaBr2(aq) + 2 H2O(l)
Step 1: Calculate the moles of Ca(OH)2.
molarity HBr (volume) → moles HBr (mole-to-mole comparison) → moles Ca(OH)2
Calcium hydroxide and hydrobromic acid react together in the following reaction.
Ca(OH)2 (aq) + HBr (aq) → CaBr2 (aq) + H2O (l)
25.00 mL of 1.50 M HBr are needed to titrate 32.801 mL of Ca(OH)2. What is the molarity of Ca(OH)2?
