What is known as Equivalent weight? Can you explain the formula ..
Asked by paulh.kvhvf | 23rd May, 2010, 08:14: PM
Equivalent weight is defined as the number of part by weight of a substance which combines with or displaces directly or indirectly 1.008 parts by weight of hydrogen or 8 parts by weight of oxygen or 35.5 parts by weight of chlorine.
Hydrogen combines with chlorine to form hydrogen chloride as
H2 + Cl22HCl
According to above equation 2 parts by weight of hydrogen combines with 71 parts by weight of chlorine
or 1 part by weight of hydrogen combines with 35.5 parts by weight of chlorine
Hence equivalent weight of chlorine is 35.5
