asked in category: General Last Updated: 9th January, 2020# How do you find the equivalent weight of ch3cooh?

**CH3COOH**) most commonly called Vinegar or

**Acetic Acid**. So,we should know the basicity of this acid. Therefore, it's

**Equivalent weight**(E) will be (

**Molecular weight**÷1). E=60÷1 because

**molecular weight of Acetic acid**is 60.

In respect to this, how do you find the equivalent weight?

**Equivalent weight** is **weight** of 1 **equivalent** of any substance. It is equal to molar mass divided by N factor. Normality denotes the number of **equivalent** of a solute in 1 lt of solution. It is n factor times molarity.

what is the percentage by mass of hydrogen in ch3cooh ch3cooh 60? Percent composition by element

Element | Symbol | Mass Percent |
---|---|---|

Hydrogen | H | 6.714% |

Carbon | C | 40.001% |

Oxygen | O | 53.285% |

Furthermore, what is the N factor of ch3cooh?

Therefore, your **n**-**factor** is 4. I would assume you are oxidizing **acetic acid** to CO2 and H2O since those are its thermodynamically more stable products.

What is the molecular mass of ch3cooh in U?

Answer and Explanation: The **molecular weight of acetic acid** is 60.048 amu. To calculate this, we first need to know the **molecular formula** for **acetic acid**, **CH3COOH**. Then, we can find the **atomic mass** of each of the atoms using the periodic table.
