. If 6 liters of hydrogen and 4 liters of chlorine are mixed and exploded and if water is added to the gases formed, find the volume of the residual gas


Best Answer

i. 6 litres of hydrogen and 4 litres of chlorine when mixed, results in the formation of 8 litres of HCl gas.

ii. When water is added to it, it results in the formation of hydrochloric acid. Chlorine acts as a limiting agent leving behind only 2 litres of hydrogen gas.

iii. Therefore, the volume of the residual gas will be 2 litres.
