0.3780 g of an organic chloro compound gave 0.5740 g of silver chloride in Carius estimation. Calculate the percentage of chlorine present in the compound.

Answer :

Given:-


Mass of organic compound=0.3780g


Mass of AgCl formed=0.5740g


1 mol of AgCl contains 1 mol of Cl.


Molecular wt. Of AgCl=143.32


(Mol. Wt. Of Ag=107.8 and Cl=35.5)


Thus, mass of chlorine in 0.5740g of AgCl


=


=0.1421g


Therefore, percentage of chlorine==37.59%


Hence, the percentage of chlorine present in the given organic chloro compound is 37.59%
