A sample of $MnSO_44H_2O$ is heated in air to give $Mn_3O_4$.The residue $Mn_3O_4$ is dissolved in 100ml of $N/10$ $FeSO_4$ containing $H_2SO_4$.The solution reacts completely with 50ml of $KMnO_4$.25ml of this $KMnO_4$ requires 30ml of N/10 $FeSO_4$ for complete oxidation.Determine the amount of $MnSO_4.4H_2O$ is the sample


1 Answer

$MnSO_4.4H_2O\qquad\underrightarrow{\Delta}\qquad Mn_3O_4$+dissolved in 100ml of N/10 $FeSO_4$
Meq of $FeSO_4$ taken=$\large\frac{1}{10}$$\times 100=10$
The solution further requires 50ml of $KMnO_4$,an oxidant (of unknown N),hence $FeSO_4$ is in excess
Excess of Meq of $FeSO_4$=Meq of $KMnO_4$(50ml)
25ml of N-$KMnO_4$=30ml of N/10 $FeSO_4$
$25\times N=30\times \large\frac{1}{10}$$\Rightarrow N=\large\frac{3}{25}$
Excess meq of $FeSO_4=\large\frac{3}{25}$$\times 50=6$
Meq of $FeSO_4$ used against $Mn_3O_4$=10-6=4
Also,meq of $Mn_3O_4$=Meq of $MnSO_4$
$\large\frac{g}{E_{MnSO_4}}$$\times 1000=4$
$\Rightarrow g=\large\frac{4}{1000}$$\times E_{MnSO_4}$
$3Mn^{2+}+4H_2O\rightarrow Mn_3O_4+8H6++2e^-$
$x=\large\frac{2}{3}\Rightarrow E=\large\frac{223}{\Large\frac{2}{3}}$
$\Rightarrow g=\large\frac{4}{1000}\times \frac{223}{\Large\frac{2}{3}}$
$\Rightarrow 1.338gm$
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
