Dear Jauneet,

We know that the hydrolysis of anhydrate sodium carbonate give 2 moles of sodium hydroxide.

So there is already x amount of water present in the sample so amount of water it contributes is x*18*density of water = 18x

We know that molarity= no of moles per litre of solution so the molecular weight of the given compound is (106+18x)gm/ mol and the total amount of water added is (100+18x) and we also know that basicity of the given compound is 2 two as it gives two moles of NaOH on hydrolysis. we also have the formula N1 * V1 =N2 * V2

=> 20*2*(0.7/(106+18x)) * (100/(100+18x)) = 0.1* 19.8

on solving this equatiopn we get x= 0.886 moles
