Normality and Molarity     Chapter 7

 

Molarity is moles per liter of solution. 

   M = moles
            liter

We use Normality when discussing solutions especially acids and bases.

   HCl   + Na(OH)        ---->  NaCl   +  HOH
   acid        base                          salt     water 

If I had 100 milliliters of a 1 M HCl acid, how many moles of H+ would I have?

 

If I had 100 milliliters of a 1 M Na(OH), how many moles of (OH)- would I have?

 

Let's look at H2(SO4)   

   H2(S04)     ------->    2 H+    +    1 (SO4)=

Each molecule of H2(SO4)  would give  2 H+   and  1 (SO4)=

If I had 100 mL of a 1 M H2(SO4)

I would have 0.10 moles of H2(SO4)
 "  "        "     0.10 moles of (SO4)=
 "  "        "     0.20 moles of H+        Why?   1 mole of H2(SO4) has 2 moles of H+ 

 1 liter of  a 1 M Na(OH) would have 1 mole of (OH)-
  l liter of  a 1 M H2(SO4)  would have 2 moles of  H+ 

If I mixed 1 L of 1 M Na(OH) with 1 L of 1 M H2(SO4) I would have an acid solution.   Why? 

 I have  2 times as much  H+'s as I have  (OH)-'s. 
1 liter of 1 M NaOH has 1 mole of Na and 1 mole of (OH)-
 1 liter of  1 M H2(SO4) has 1 mole of  (SO4) and 2 moles of  H+ 

When using acids and bases we use Normality (N) instead of Molarity (M).

1 M HCl   =    1 N HCl
1 M H2(SO4)  =  2 N H2(SO4)
1 M H3(PO4)  =   __
N H3(PO4

H2(SO4)  +  2 Na(OH)  ------>  Na2(SO4) + 2 HOH

 

If I had 100 milliliters of a 1 M H2(SO4), how many moles of H+ would I have? 

 a 1 M H2(SO4) solution is a 2 N H2(SO4
for every mole of sulfuric acid, you would get 2 moles of H+

1 M Ca(OH)2   =   _____ N Ca(OH)2
For every mole of calcium hydroxide, would get 2 moles of hydroxide ions.
 

HCl has only 1 hydrogen 
 

H2SO4  has 2 hydrogens 

a 1 M HCl is a 1 N HCl 

a 1 M H2SO4 is 2 N H2SO4

 Examples 

What is the normality of 3 M H2(SO4)?

      1 M H2(SO4)      =      2 N H2(SO4)
     3 M H2(SO4)      =       x N H2(SO4)

    1         =        2            criss cross multiply
   3                    x 

    x  =  6 

What is the molarity of 6 N H3(PO4) ? 

   1 M H3(PO4)        =       3 N H3(PO4)
    x                         =        6 N H3(PO4

       1         =       3 
       x                  6

       x = 2

Neutralization   

If I had 50 H+'s how many (OH)- s would I need to neutralize it? 

If I had 50  H+, how many (OH)- would I need to neutralize it? 

We frequently use the term EQUIVALENTS or MILLIQUIVALENTS when discussing hydrogen ions or hydroxyl ions.

You can think in terms of moles of H+ or moles of OH- when using the term equivalent.

Equivalents =  Normality x Liters              Molarity   =  moles
                                                                                           L

                                                                  moles    =   Molarity
                                                                     L

                                                                    moles    =  Molarity x L 

                                                               Equivalents  =  Normality x L

Milliequivalents  =   Normality  x   Milliliters

If I had 50 mL of a 2 N H(SO)4 how many milliequivalents of H+ do I have? 

How many milliequivalents of hydroxyl would I need to neutralize it?

meq H+            =  meq (OH)- 

   N1V1   =  N2V2 

  (N) (mL)     =     (N) (mL)

Dilutions   

Suppose I had 12 N HCl and wanted to make up 200 mL of 0.1 N solution.  How many milliliters of the concentrated solution would I need to make up 200 mL of the dilute solution?

 

How many milliequivalents of H+ would I need in 200 mL of 0.1 N HCl

Meq =   (N) (mL)    

So how many milliequivalents would I need to take out of the concentrated HCl solution?

 

How many milliliters would have that number of milliequivalents?

Formula for dilutions

      meq          =       meq
