3 ( mathrm{g} ) of activated charcoal was added to ( 50 mathrm{mL} ) of acetic acid solution ( (0.06 mathrm{N}) ) in a flask. After an hour it was filtered and the strength of the filtrate was found to be ( 0.042 mathrm{N} ). The amount of acetic acid adsorbed (per gram of charcoal) is
(a) ( 18 mathrm{mg} )
(b) ( 36 mathrm{mg} )
(c) ( 42 mathrm{mg} )
(d) ( 54 mathrm{mg} )

3 g of activated charcoal was added to 50mL of acetic acid solution (0.06N) in a flask. After an hour it was filtered and the strength of the filtrate was found to be 0.042N. The amount of acetic acid adsorbed (per gram of charcoal) is

Given, initial strength of acetic acid ( =0.06 mathrm{N} ) Final strength ( =0.042 mathrm{N} ; quad ) Volume ( =50 mathrm{mL} )
( therefore ) Initial millimoles of ( mathrm{CH}_{3} mathrm{COOH}=0.06 times 50=3 )
Final millimoles of ( mathrm{CH}_{3} mathrm{COOH}=0.042 times 50=2.1 )
( therefore ) Millimoles of ( mathrm{CH}_{3} mathrm{COOH} ) adsorbed ( =3-2.1=0.9 mathrm{mmol} )
( left(m_{mathrm{O}_{2}}right) quad=0.9 times 60 mathrm{mg}=54 mathrm{m} )
