## What is N factor in chemistry?

For acids, n-factor is defined as the number of H+ ions replaced by 1 mole of acid in a reaction. For bases, n-factor is defined as the number of OH– ions replaced by 1 mole of base in a reaction. The n-factor for such salts is defined as the total moles of catioinic/anionic charge replaced in 1 mole of the salt.

**How do you calculate the NF of na2co3?**

N factor will be 2. For a salt it is calculated by the charge present on the electropositive cation here its sodium.

### What is the N factor of k2 cr2 o7?

6

n factor of K2Cr2O7 There is overall gain of 6 electrons. That means the n-factor for this reaction is 6.

**How do you find the N factor of NaCl?**

N = 1 because in case of ionic solid (NaCl) the n factor is equl to charge on cation.

## What is the N factor of Mohr salt?

-1

Mohr’s salt is the inorganic compound with the formula (NH4)2Fe(SO4)2(H2O)6 or FeSO4. (NH4)2SO4. 6H2O. The ‘n’ factor or conversion factor of Mohr’s salt is -1.

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

2

We need to know what n-factor is. N-factor is the acidity of a base or the basicity of an acid. The acid given is Phosphorus acid whose n-factor is 2. Phosphorus acid has a basicity of 2.

### What is n factor of NaHCO3?

NaHCO3 is in the product side.It is not reacting with any other compounds.so the n-factor is the number of positive or negative charge. Na is having charge of +1.So n factor of NaHCO3 is 1.

**What is the N factor of fec2o4?**

Answer: So, the oxidation number of carbon changes from +3 to +4. As, there are two carbon atoms, the net change in oxidation number is +2 and adding to this the increase in oxidation state of iron, the final increase in oxidation number is +3. Hence, the n-factor of is 3.

## What is the N factor of MgSO4?

n factor of MgSO4 and all ionic compounds is always greater than one theoretically, else it depends on degree of dissociation experimentally. from above reaction we can clearly say that the n factor for MgSO4 is 2 as it dissociates completely into two ions.

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

6H2O. In Mohr’s salt Fe is in +2 state (Fe2 +) , it oxidises by removing 1 electron and converts to Fe3 +. Therefore n- factor = 1.

### What is the N factor of fecl3?

The n factor of ferric sulphate is 2 because the formula of ferric sulphate is Fe(SO4)2.So in an aqueous solution of ferric sulphate two sulphate ions will be dissociated and hence, the n factor will be 2.

**What is the n-factor of salt?**

My source says : For salts which react such that no atom undergoes change in oxidation state , n-factor for such salt is the total moles of cationic /anionic species replaced in 1 mole of the salt . is 3. Please can anybody give more examples and explain that to me?

## What is the n factor of a base?

The n factor of a base is the no. of OH – ions that a molecule of the base would give when dissolved in a solvent (Acidity). e.g. NaOH (n = 1), Ba (OH) 2 (n = 2), Al (OH) 3 (n = 3), etc. (iv) For Salts: A salt reacting such that no atom of the salt undergoes any change in oxidation state.

**What is the n-factor of sodium phosphate in this reaction?**

Hence n -factor = 3. In reactions like this where there’s no change in oxidation number, the n -factor will always be the net positive charge in 1 molecule of that compound, in this case since there are 3 N a ions in sodium phosphate, the n -factor = 3 × 1 = 3.

### How do you find the n-factor of a salt?

It changes to a compound, which has atom D in it. The oxidation state of A in A c D be +y. To calculate n-factor of a salt of such type, we take one mole of the reactant and find the number of mole of the element whose oxidation state is changing.
