It is Ionic and not molecular, or acidique you are dealing with potassium (K), and permanganate (Mno4) which is a polyatomic ion.

Kmno4 is ionic.

What is the mass of 2.55 mol of KMnO4?

Number of moles= Mass/molar mass (g/mol) Hence Mass= mol × molar mass Mol=2.55 Molar mass of KMnO4= 39+55+(16×4)= 158g/mol Where K=39, Mn=55 and O =16 Hence Mass of KMnO4 in 2.55 mols of the compound= 2.55×158= 402.9g.

Why does alkene reacts kmno4?

KMnO4 will react with compounds having unsaturation (double bond or triple bond). Since alkenes have double bond, it will react with KMnO4 and decolourize dilute KMnO4 solution.

IS KNO3 polar or non polar?

KMnO4 is potassium permanganate. It is a salt with an ionic formula of K+ MNO4-. Polar and non polar usually refer to molecular compounds and give an indication of their solubility. The bond between Mn and O in the permanganate ion is polar covalent.

Is KMnO4 a strong or weak electrolyte?

KMnO4 is a strong electrolyte.

In manufacture of potassium permanganate by electrolysis of k2mno4 what should be the equivalent weight of kmno4 how much kmno4 will be produced by 96478 coulombs or one farady?

Equivalent weight of KMnO4 is equal with molar weight of KMnO4. The some is and for K2MnO4, K2MnO4 - e +OH- --------- KMnO4 + KOH In general, Equivalent weight = Molar weight / Number of electrons that take or give one molecule Equivalent weight of KMnO4 = Molar weight of KMnO4 / 1
