CAN I PLEASE KNOW WHY DILUTE HCL CANNOT BE CONCENTRATED BEYOND A CERTAIN LEVEL?
CAN YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN THE SAME?
- Concentrated HCl solution is the concentrated mixture of HCl gas in water.
- When the concentration of HCl gas in water becomes 22.2 % by weight, it forms a constant boiling mixture.
- At this concentration if this solution is still heated, then water and HCl vaporise in the same proportion by weight.
- Hence, beyond this limit, dilute HCl can not be concentrated.
