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