#### Question

The drain cleaner, Drainex contains small bits of aluminum which react with caustic soda to produce dihydrogen. What volume of dihydrogen at 20 °C and one bar will be released when 0.15g of aluminum reacts?

#### Solution

The chemical equation for the reaction is

2 Al + 2 NaOH + H20 -> 2 NaAl02 + 3H2 (3 x 22400 mL At N.T.P)
2 x 27 = 54 g.

54 g of Al at N.T.P release

H2 gas = 3 x 22400 0.15 g of Al at N.T.P release

H_2 " gas" = (3xx22400xx0.15)/54

= 186.7 mL

N.T.P condition V_1 = 186.7 mL , V_2 = ?

P_1 = 1.013 bar ,   P_2 =  1 bar

T_1 = 0 + 273 = 273 K,  T_2 = 20 + 273 = 293 K

Accourding to gas equation

(P_1V_1)/T_1 = (P_2V_2)/T_2   or V_2 = (P_1V_1T_2)/(P_2T_1)

V_2 = (1.013 "bar" xx 186.7 mL xx 293K)/ (1 "bar" xx 273 K)

= 203 mL
