I need help completing the post-lab data analysis for my report on the measurement of chloride in local water samples. Below are the class’s average volumes of 0.010M AgNO3 added for each of the three samples (tap water, lake water, and effluent).
-Volume of silver nitrate used (Tap Water) = 8.22 mL
-Volume of silver nitrate used (Lake Water) = 21.10 mL
-Volume of silver nitrate used (Effluent Water) = 22.77 mL
With that information I have to answer this question:
Moles of Cl- reacted
Hint: The chemical equation for the reaction of chloride with silver nitrate shows a 1:1 molar ratio between AgNO3 and Cl-: AgNO3 + Cl- -> AgCl + NO3-
