## What is n factor of NaOH?

For bases, n-factor is defined as the number of OH– ions replaced by 1 mole of base in a reaction. Note that n-factor is not equal to its acidity i.e. the number of moles of replaceable OH– ions present in 1 mole of base. For example, n-factor of NaOH = 1.

**How do you find the N factor in a disproportionation reaction?**

- you can calculate n factor in disproportionation reaction by the formula.
- 1/N=1/n1 +1/n2.
- where n1=n factor for oxidation half.
- n2=n factor for reduction half.

### What is the N factor of I2 in the reaction I I2?

SO here, the average oxidation number for each atom of I in the I2 molecule is 0 and for the atom of I in NaI is -1. Thus the change in oxidation number for each atom of I is 1, but as their are 2 I atoms involved, the n factor comes out to be 2.

**What is n factor of h2o?**

the n factor will be 4 because two oxygen atoms lose 4 electrons means 2 by each of the 4 hydrogen atoms will gain 1 electron. This the reason why the n factor of water is 1.

## What is the N factor of bromine?

2(BrO3)- becomes Br2. Here +10 charge on bromine changes to 0. But n factor is calculated only for one ion and here there are two (2(BrO3)-) ions. Therefore n factor of sodium bromate in this reaction is 10/2 = 5.

**What would be the N factor for na2s2o3 in the following reaction?**

Change in oxidation state gives n factor which for this particular reaction is 0.5.

### What is the N factor of Na2Co3?

Na2Co3 N factor is 2.

**What is the N factor of the reactant?**

For bases, n-factor is defined as the number of OH– ions replaced by 1 mole of base in a reaction. Note that n-factor is not equal to its acidity i.e. the number of moles of replaceable OH– ions present in 1 mole of base.

## What is the equivalent mass of mno2 in acidic medium?

So, equivalent weight = molar mass/ 3 = 87/3 = 29 gm/equivalent.
