🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Goyan's class at SFU.
For the remaining questions, assume that you start with 0.410 g of copper turnings:
a) Calculate the initial number of moles of Cu.
b) Calculate the minimum volume of 16.0 M HNO3 required to dissolve all of the copper.
c) If, in practice, 5.0 mL of 16.0 M nitric acid were added to effect the dissolution of the copper (step 1), what would be the minimum volume of 4.00 M NaOH required to neutralize the remaining acid and convert all of the Cu2+(aq) to Cu(OH)2(s)?
d) Calculate the minimum volume of 1.00 M H2SO4 required to dissolve all of the CuO(s).
e) Calculate the minimum mass of zinc required to reduce all of the Cu 2+(aq) to Cu(s).
(Note that, in practice, a significant excess of zinc is used due to loss of H 2(g).)
