Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

Solutions of sulfuric acid and lead(II) acetate react to form solid lead(II) sulfate and a solution of acetic acid. If 9.00 g of sulfuric acid and 9.00 g of lead(II) acetate are mixed, calculate the number of grams of each of the following present in the mixture after the reaction is complete:

a) Sulfuric Acid

b) lead(II) acetate

c) lead(II) sulfate

d) acetic acid

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

find the moles or H2SO4 and Pb(C2H3O2)2

9.00/98.086 = .091756 mol H2SO4

9.00/266.244 = .033804 mol Pb(C2H3O2)2

If you assume that the reaction proceeds to completion with equation

H2SO4 + Pb(C2H3O2)2 ===> PbSO4 + 2HC2H3O2

9 g H2SO4 = 9g / 98.08g/mole =0.09176 moles H2SO4
9 g HC2H3O2 = 9g / 266.24 g/mole = 0.033804 moles of Pb(OAc)2
After mixing-
0.02767 moles of PbSO4
0.05534 mole of HC2H3O2
0.00000 mole of Pb(C2H3O2)2
0.091756 - 0.033804 = 0.057952 moles of H2SO4
0.057952 * 98.08 g/mole = 5.68428 g H2SO4 

Then Pb(C2H3O2)2 must be the limiting reactant. There would remain 0 mol (and thus 0 g) of Pb(C2H3O2)2. There would remain .091756 - .033804 = .057952 mol H2SO4

convert to grams, so 0.057952*98.08 = 5.68428 g H2SO4

The ratio of Pb(C2H3O2)2 to PbSO4 is 1 mol to 1 mol, so there must be .033804 mol PbSO4 created (same as Pb(C2H3O2)2 used up). Convert to grams,

.033804 mol * (303.27g/mol) = 10.2517 g PbSO4

The ratio for HC2H3O2 is 1 mol Pb(C2H3O2)2 to 2 mol HC2H3O2 so there must be

.033804 mol Pb(C2H3O2)2 * [ 2 mol HC2H3O2 / 1 mol Pb(C2H3O2)2] notice the units cancel to leave

.067608 mol HC2H3O2

convert to grams:

.067608 mol * (60.052 g/mol) = 4.06000 g HC2H3O2


0g Pb(C2H3O2)2
5.68 g H2SO4
10.3 g PbSO4
4.06 g HC2H3O2

I already knew the H2SO4's correct answer, according to my teacher is: 

0.06409 moles x 98.08 g/mole = 6.29 g H2SO4 

So... I dont know what to say haha do you think you can rework evaluate it or something. Sorry :/

Jul 23rd, 2015

ok i will rework on the calculation

Jul 23rd, 2015

When will youn have the new answer?

Jul 23rd, 2015

I can send you the new answer very soon but can you please give a good review for this question? I would be appreciate that.

Jul 23rd, 2015

can you please give me a review now? if possible, i would be highly appreciate it and would definitely send the new correct answer very soon. Thanks for your help.

Jul 23rd, 2015

first give me answer :) and ill be happy to give u 5 stars

Jul 23rd, 2015

ok i will send the answer in 1-2 hours, but please keep your word. Thanks you.

Here is my correct solution:


H2SO4+ Pb(CH3COO)­2 = PbSO4 + 2CH3COOH

mole H2SO4 = 9.00 g / 98.078 g/mol = 0.09176 moles

mole CH3COOH = 9.00 g / 325.3 g/mol = 0.02767 moles

mole H2SO4 in excess = 0.09176 - 0.02767 = 0.06409 moles

mass H2SO4 in excess =0.06409 mol x 98.078 g/mol = 6.29 g

mass lead(II) acetate = 0

moles acetic acid = 2 x 0.02767 = 0.05534 moles

mass acetic acid = 0.05534 mol x 60.054 g/mol = 3.32 g

moles lead(II) sulfate = 0.02767 moles

mass lead(II) sulfate = 0.02767 mol x 303.26 g/mol = 8.39 g


6.29 g H2SO4

0 g Pb(CH3COO)­2

3.32 g CH3COOH

8.39 g PbSO4
