10.00 mL aliquot of a triprotic acid is reacted with 27.42 mL 0.168M KOH solution. Determine the molar mass of the acid.

 

I'm not sure how can I find the mass of the acid, because I don't see anything mass-related to the acid. And also, does the "aliquot" affect anything?

I don't think there is no enough info. If the acid reacts with the base completely then there moles must be equal.

Which is .068*27.42== the mole of the acid ,then you can proceed.

Why do you think there's enough information when three people have pointed out that there isn't?

 

If you are sure there's enough information, why not just answer the question?

That would prove the point.

Which triprotic acids did you have at school?
