$1.387g$ of a sample containing KCl and $NH_4Cl$ is heated until constant weight.The residue is dissolved in 20ml of N/10 $AgNO_3$ solution.Calculate % of chlorine in mixture.


1 Answer

Weight of KCl='a'g
Weight of KCl='b'g
On heating
$KCl\rightarrow $No change
$NH_4Cl\rightarrow NH_3\uparrow +HCl \uparrow$
The residue is only KCl,which reacts with $AgNO_3$
Meq of KCl=Meq of $AgNO_3$
$\large\frac{a}{74.5}$$\times 1000$$=20\times \large\frac{1}{10}$
$\large\frac{w}{35.5}$$\times 1000=\large\frac{0.149}{74.5}$$\times 1000+\large\frac{1.238}{53.5}$$\times 1000$
% of $Cl$ in mixture=$\large\frac{0.892}{1.387}$$\times 100$
$\Rightarrow 64.31\%$
Hence (d) is the correct answer.
