Consider the reaction of aluminum chloride with silver acetate. How ml of 0.250M aluminum chloride are required to react completely with 20ml of 0.500M silver acetate?

    AlCl3 + 3(AgC2H3O2) -> Al(C2H3O2)3 + 3(AgCl)

    Yes I was about to tell you to post that

    First off recognize that Molarity = moles/Liters

    You have a volume 20ml of 0.500M acetate

    Thus you can say x moles/0.02L = 0.500M of acetate solve for the moles

    Look at the ratio you have 3 times the moles of silver acetate for everyone one mole of aluminum chloride

    Since the division cancels multiplication you simply divide the number of moles of silver acetate by 3 to solve for the moles of aluminum chloride

    This will give you the moles, since you have the concentration of aluminum chloride you can just sub them into the equation to solve for the liters Molarity = moles/liters

    remember the conversion Liters * 1000 = mL mL/1000 = Liters

    i did the this: 1 mole of AlCl3 -> 3 moles of AgC2H3O2 x -> 0.01 so x= 0.0033. 0.5 = 0.003/volume , volume = 0.0066, is it right?

    0.500M = x/0.020L x = 0.500M*0.020L x=0.01moles 0.01moles/3 = 0.0033mol of Ag acetate thus 0.250M = 0.0033mol/x 0.0033mol/0.250 = x x = 0.013L

    0.013L = 13mL

    I think you made a mistake with your algebra remember Molarity = Moles/Volume thus you have 0.250M = 0.0033mol/x = 0.250M*x = 0.0033mol*x/x = 0.250M*x = 0.0033mol = 0.250M*x/0.250M = 0.0033mol/0.250M = x = 0.0033mol/0.250M

    remember you want to bring the x into the numerator and isolate it

    you never want it in the denominator
