A 15.0 mL sample of an unknown H3PO4 solution requires 110 mL of 0.120 M KOH to completely react with the H3PO4 according the following reaction.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

H3PO4 + 3KOH --------> 3H20 + K3PO4

What was the concentration of the unknown H3PO4 solution?

______________________________________…

This SEEMED correct way to start problem, as it turns out this is not how to set up the problem, (attempt at doing the problem) : 15mL converted that to L , got 0.015 L, then multiplied that by .12 moles of the solute KOH divided by 1 Liter of the solution H3PO4, used the mole to mole conversion 3 moles of KOH to every 1 mole of H3PO4 and got the wrong answer. It's supposed to be

.293 Molarity.
