Question #200324

formic acid, HCOOC, can decompose to fom carbon monoxide gas, CO, and liquid water. if 3.85 L of CO was collected by downward displacement of water at 25.0 degree celcius and 689 mmHg how many grams of formic acid were reacted

Expert's answer

Ans:- Reaction of Decomposition of Formic Acid

Carbon Mono Oxide was collected at temperature and at Pressure and having Volume

Value of Gas Constant

Ideal Gas equation

of Carbon Mono Oxide was formed by the decomposition of formic acid

So, According to Stoichiometry

of formic acid react to form = of Carbon Mono Oxide

Hence of formic Acid was reacted

Therefore Gram of Formic Acid react
