3 g of activated charcoal was added to 50 mL of acetic acidsolution (0.06N) in a flask. After an hour it was filtered andthe strength of the filtrate was found to be 0.042 N. Theamount of acetic acid adsorbed (per gram of charcoal) is : [JEE M 2015]
Let the weight of acetic acid initially be w1 in 50 ml of 0.060 N solution
Let the N = (Normality = 0.06 N)
After an hour, the strength of acetic acid = 0.042 N
so, let the weight of acetic acid be w2
⇒ w2 = 0.126 g = 126 mg
So amount of acetic acid adsorbed per 3g
= 180 – 126 mg = 54 mg
Amount of acetic acid adsorbed per g
= 54/3 = 18 mg
