Chapter 3, Problems #6

Do you need an answer to a question different from the above? Ask your question!

At 25^{o}C, an aqueous solution containing 35.0 wt% H_{2}SO_{4} has a specific gravity of 1.2563. A quantity of the 35% solution is needed that contains 195.5 kg of H_{2}SO_{4}.

(a) Calculate the required volume (L) of the solution using the given specific gravity.

(b) Estimate the percentage error that would have resulted if pure-component specific gravities of H_{2}SO_{4}(SG = 1.8255) and water had been used for the calculation instead of the given specific gravity of the mixture.
