# How many grams of hydrochloric acid is required to neutralize 24 grams of potassium hydroxide?

| We write down the equation of reactions.

HCl + NaOH = NaCl + H2O.

Next, we calculate the molar mass of sodium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid.

M (HCl) = 35.5 + 1 = 36.5 g / mol.

M (NaOH) = 23 + 16 + 1 = 40 g / mol.

Further, according to the reaction equation, we find the mass of hydrochloric acid.

X g HCl – 24 g NaOH.

36.5 g / mol HCl – 40 g / mol NaOH.

Find the unknown value of x.

X = 36.5 × 24 ÷ 40 = 21.9 g.

This means that 21.9 grams of hydrochloric acid will be required.

Answer: m (HCl) = 21.9 g.
