How do I find x in FeC2O4.xH2O. I am told that this is a hydrated salt of 1.75g and was dissolved in acid and made up to 250ml. A 25mL sample of this solution required 29.15mL of standardised 0.0200mol/L KMnO4 solution for complete oxidation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I worked out n(MnO4-) = cv = 5.83 x 10^-4 moles

and n(C2O4^2-) = 1.4575 x 10^-3 moles

and c(C2O4^2-) = n/v = 0.0583 molL-1

I just don't know how to find x
