Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A mixture consists of FeSO4 and Fe2(SO4)3. A 0.1223g sample of this mixture was dissolved in water and titrated with 0.00420M KMnO4 solution. The titration required 18.85mL of the KMn04 solution. What percent, by mass, of the mixture was FeSO4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The only formulas I have are: 5 (Fe 2+) + (MnO4 ) + 8 (H +) > 5 (Fe 3+) + (Mn 2+) + 4 (H2O) 5 (H2C2O4) + 2 (MnO4 ) + 16 (H +) > 10 (CO2) + 2 (Mn 2+) + 8 (H2O)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you're oxidizing Fe(II) to Fe{III), so Fe2(SO4)3 is irrelevant so find the moles of KMnO4 used using: \(\sf molarity=\dfrac{moles~of~solute}{L~solution}\) After it's a regular stoichiometry problem, so next, (following the first equation), write a ratio of the chemical species of interest (Fe(II) and MnO^4), and their coefficients from the balanced reaction. Solve for moles of Fe(II), convert it to grams. Then finally find how the percent of FeSO4 in the sample (divide the mass you found by the mass of the mixture, multiply by 100%).
