(a)A 52.00-mL sample containing La3+ was treated with sodium oxalate to precipitate La2(C2O4)3, which was washed, dissolved in acid, and titrated with 18.48 mL of 0.006345 M KMnO4. Write the titration reaction. (Use the lowest possible whole number coefficients. Omit states-of-matter from your answer.)
HINT: WebAssign expects a net ionic equation. However, in acidic solution oxalate is protonated and so exists as oxalic acid = H2C2O4.
(b)Find [La3+ ] in the unknown.
