- Salts and oxides react with phosphoric acid. How do I get conversion %?
I have a solid ash mix containing oxides(ZnO, NiO, MgO, Cr2O3, etc.) and salts (Na2SO4, K2SO4, apatite, etc.). I am supposed to write all of the reactions with phosphoric acid (should be between 1 and 2 mol/l) and put it in a simulation for mass and energy balances. But since phosphoric acid is a weak acid, this stuff doesn't 100% convert, right? Or maybe not at all...? I can look for the reactions no problem, but I have no idea how I would search for the conversion %. Can I maybe make some assumptions fe conversion of everything is 50%. Can anyone give me some tips on how I best handle this or which assumptions I can make?
