2 Quantitative Analysis: is analysis which involves investigating the quantities or amounts of materials present.Gravimetric analysis (Chpt. 11) – composition of substances determined by careful weighingVolumetric analysis (Chpt. 13) – composition of substances determined by reacting together volumes of solutions
3 REMEMBER:A solution is a mixture of a solute and a solventA solvent: is a substance that dissolves other materialsA solute: is the substance that dissolves in the solvent
4 Concentration:A concentrated solution contains a large amount of solute per litre of solution e.g. strong coffeeA dilute solution contains a small amount of solute per litre of solution e.g. weak coffee
5 ConcentrationThe concentration of a solution is the amount of solute that is dissolved in a given volume of solution
6 There are several ways of expressing the concentration of a solution: Percentage of solute – 3 formsParts per million (ppm)Moles of solute per litre of solution (MOLARITY)
7 Percentage of solute(This method of expressing concentration is usually used in many household solutions and in medicine)There are 3 ways in which the percentage of solute in a solution is expressed:a) Percentage weight per weight (w/w)b) Percentage weight per volume (w/v)c) Percentage volume per volume (v/v)
8 Percentage weight per weight (w/w): This is the number of grams of solute per 100g of solution e.g.10% w/w NaCl → 10g of sodium chloride per g of solution2% w/w Arnica ointment → 2g of arnica per g of ointment
9 Percentage weight per volume (w/v): This is the number of grams of solute per 100cm3 of solution e.g.10% w/v NaCl → 10g of sodium chloride per cm3 of solution5% w/v NaCl → 5g of NaCl in 100cm3 of solution*Note: usually the units are grams per litre (g/L) therefore you would have to bring it to a litre*
10 Percentage volume per volume (v/v): This is the number of cm3 of solute per 100cm3 of solution e.g.5% v/v vinegar solution → 5cm3 of ethanoic acid per 100cm3 of vinegar13% v/v wine solution → 13cm3 of ethanol (alcohol) per 100cm3 of wine
11 Complete the following table: Concentration UnitExampleMeaningPercentage weight per volume (w/v)3% (w/v) NaCl solutionPercentage volume per volume (v/v)3% (v/v) alcohol solutionPercentage weight per weight (w/w)3% (w/w) sugar solution*Note: DO NOT take down table
12 The following calculations involve working with percentages!!!! Make sure you understand the definitions!!!!!
13 Example 1:A solution contains 20g of potassium hydroxide in 1 litre of solution. Express the concentration of the solution in % (w/v).Solution:
14 Example 2:A bottle of vinegar contains 25cm3 ethanoic acid in 500cm3 of solution. Express the concentration of ethanoic acid in the solution in % (v/v)Solution:
15 Example 3:A solution contains 10g of sodium carbonate in 40g of solution. Express the concentration of the solution in % (w/w).Solution:
16 Example 4:The label on a bottle of wine indicates that the concentration of alcohol in the wine is 9% (v/v). What volume of alcohol is there in 250cm3 of the wine?Solution:
17 Try the following:A sample of sea water has a mass of 1.3kg. On evaporating the water, 148g of salt was recovered from it. Express the concentration of the salt as % w/w.Some illnesses can upset the salt balance in the body and it may be necessary to administer salt intravenously. The solution of salt that is injected is marked 0.85% w/v. What weight of sodium chloride is needed to make up 250cm3 of this solution?
18 2. Parts per million (ppm) This method of expressing the concentration of a solution is only used for very dilute solutions i.e. when dealing with very low concentrations of substances.This is the number of milligrams per litre (mgL-1)*Note: 1 Litre of water has a mass of 1 million milligrams*So, can say 1mg/L = 1 mg per million mg= 1 ppmExample: the concentration of chlorine in water is2 ppm this means there are 2 mg of chlorine perlitre of water
20 3) Moles of solute per litre of solution (MOLARITY) Remember:One mole of a substance is the amount of that substance which contains 6 x 1023 particles (atoms, ions, molecules) of that substanceMass of 1 mole of an element = Relative Atomic Mass in gramse.g.1 mole of Na = 23 g1 mole of Mg = 24g
21 The Molarity of a solution is the number of moles The most important way of expressing the concentration of a solution is in terms of moles per litre of solution (molarity)Definitions:The Molarity of a solution is the number of molesof solute per litre of solutionA 1 molar solution is a solution which contains onemole of solute per litre of solutionalso,- a solution which contains 2 moles ofsolute in a litre of solution is said to be 2molar (2M)- a solution which contains 0.5 moles of solute in a litre of solution is said to be molar (0.5M)
22 Symbols Used:- M- mol/L or mol L-1Remember:No. of Moles of = Mass of SubstanceSubstance Molar Mass
23 Concentration Examples: -1 mol/L NaOH = 40g NaOH (Mr NaOH = 40) per litre of solution- 2mol/L NaOH = 80g NaOH per litre of solution- 0.5mol/L NaOH = 20g NaOH per litre of solution- 0.1 M (decimolar) NaOH = 4g NaOH per litre of solution
25 Calculations Involving Molarity Three types:1. Converting Molarity to Grams per Litre2. Converting Grams per Litre(Volume) to Molarity3. Calculation of number of Moles from Molarity and Volume
26 Concentration in g/L = Molar Mass x Molarity Converting Molarity to Grams per LitreExample 1:What is the concentration in g/L of a 0.1 M H2SO4Solution?Example 2:How many grams of NaCl per litre are present in a solutionmarked 0.25 M NaCl.Example 3:Calculate the concentration in grams per litre ofbench dilute sulphuric acid whose concentration Is 1.5mol/LConcentration in g/L = Molar Mass x Molarity
27 2. Converting Grams per Litre(Volume) to Molarity Molarity = Grams per LitreMolar MassExample 1:What is the molarity of a NaOH solution containing 4g of NaOH per litre?Solution:
28 Example 2:What is the molarity of a solution that contains 3.68g of NaOH per litre of solution?
29 Example 3:Calculate the concentration in moles per litre of a solution containing 45 grams of sulphuric acid per 250cm3 of solution.
30 3. Calculation of number of moles from molarity and volume No. of moles = Volume(L) x MolarityExample 1:How many moles are there in 250cm3 of 0.1 M HCl?Solution:
31 Example 2:How many moles of NaOH are present in 25cm3 of 0.55M NaOH
32 Example 3:How many moles of hydrochloric acid are present in 30cm3 of 0.2M HCl
33 Example 4:What mass of sodium hydroxide is contained in 25cm3 of a 0.75M solution of sodium hydroxide?
34 Example 5:What volume of 0.15M sodium hydroxide solution will contain 5 grams of sodium hydroxide?
35 Balanced Chemical Equations A balanced equation tells you the amounts of substances that react together and the amounts of products formed.Consider the following balanced equation for the reaction between hydrogen gas and oxygen gas to form water:2H O2 → 2H2OThis equation can be interpreted in a number of ways.
36 In terms of molecules:2 molecules 1 molecules moleculeIn terms of Avogadro’s number of molecules:2 x 6 x x 6 x x 6 x 1023molecules molecules molecules*REMEMBER: the amount of a substance which contains the Avogadro number of particles is called a mole of that substance2H O → H2O2H O → H2O
37 In terms of Moles of a substance: 2 moles 1 mole 2 molesFurther examples:a) 2Mg O → MgO2 moles mole molesb) CaCO → CaO CO21 mole mole molec) CH O → CO H2O1 mole moles mole moles2H O → H2O
38 Reactions between a solution and a solid In a number of chemical reactions solids react with solutions. You may be asked to calculate the mass of metal which reacts with a given volume of acidExample 1:What mass of magnesium will react with 50cm3 of 0.5M H2SO4. The balanced equation for the reaction is:Mg + H2SO4 → MgSO H2
40 Example 2:Sodium carbonate, Na2 CO3, reacts with dilute hydrochloric acid according to the equation:Na2CO HCl → 2NaCl CO H2OWhat volume of hydrochloric acid of concentration 0.75M would be needed to neutralise 7.5g of anhydrous sodium carbonate?
42 Concentration of Solutions 1 mole/250cm31 mole/L1 mole/500cm31 mole/100cm3
43 If in each volumetric flask one mole of solute is dissolved then as the volume becomes smaller, the concentration increases.In the case of a coloured solution , as the concentration increases, the intensity of the colour also increases (see diagram pg. 148 book)
44 Dilution of SolutionsTo save space in our prep room we buy solutions in concentrated form, i.e. 18M HCl (18 mol L-1). We call these stock solutionsDefinition:The process of adding more solvent to a solution is called dilution.A typical dilution involves determining how much water must be added to an amount of stock solution to achieve a solution of the desired concentration
45 Moles of solute = Moles of solute before dilution after dilution When a solution is diluted, more solvent is added but the quantity of solute is unchanged:Moles of solute = Moles of solutebefore dilution after dilutionSince the volume of the solution increases and the number of moles present remains the same, then the concentration of the solution must decrease*Note: diluting a coloured solution results in a lightening of the colour of the solution i.e. colour intensity is proportional to concentration
46 Calculation of the Effect of Dilution on Concentration MolarityDil x VolumeDil = MolarityConc. x VolumeConc.M1 x V = M x V2
47 Example 1:If 20cm3 of a 3M hydrochloric acid solution is diluted to a volume of 1 L with water, what is the concentration of the diluted acid?Solution:
48 Example 2:What volume of a 2M sodium hydroxide solution is needed to make up 100 cm3 of a 0.1 M sodium hydroxide solution
49 Student Questions: Question 1: If 12cm3 of a 0.1M sodium hydroxide solution is diluted to a volume of 500cm3 with water, what is the concentration of the diluted solution?Question 2:What volume of 1M NaOH solution is needed to make 300cm3 of 0.05M solution?
50 Standard Solutions Definition: A standard solution is a solution whose concentration is accurately knowne.g. a solution containing 10 grams of NaCl per litre is a standard solutionIn the determination of the concentration of an acid a standard solution of an alkali is used and to determine the concentration of an alkali a standard acid would be used. However, before any determinations can be made a starting accurately standardised solution is required – from which to find the exact concentration of other solutions
51 A standard solution is prepared by weighing out a sample of solute, transferring it completely to a volumetric flask, and adding enough solvent (usually deionised water) to bring the volume up to the mark on the neck of the flask.
52 Due to the fact that many substances can not be obtained in a high degree of purity standard solutions of common laboratory acids and bases cannot be prepared directly e.g.:- cannot weigh out 1 mole of sulphuric acid as it absorbs moisture from the air- cannot weigh out 1 mole of nitric acid as it is volatile- cannot weigh out 1 mole of iodine as it sublimes at room temperatureIn order to make up standard solutions substances which can be obtained in a highly pure state and which are stable in air are required
53 Primary Standard Definition: A primary standard is a substance which can be obtained in a stable, pure and soluble solid form so that it can be weighed out and dissolved in water to give a solution of accurately known concentrationPrimary Standard Solution = Pure 100% Soluble Stableonce made upExamples of Primary Standards:- Anhydrous sodium carbonate Na2CO3- Sodium Chloride NaCl- Potassium Dichromate K2Cr2O7
54 To prepare a standard solution of sodium carbonate Mandatory Expt. 13.1:To prepare a standard solution of sodium carbonateNote: You must have a clear understanding of all the steps you undertake in this experiment and be able to explain the importance of each step
55 Volumetric Analysis - Titrations Definitions:Standardise: means to find the concentration of a solution using titrationA Titration: is a laboratory procedure where a measured volume of one solution is added to a known volume of another solution until the reaction is complete.Equivalence Point (End Point): the stage when the two solutions just react completely with each other
