Hi Pallavi,

0.5 g silver salt-------------0.355 g silver--------------0.145g

R(COOAg)2                            Ag                          R(COO-)2

0.355/108----no of moles of Ag

0.355/216----no of moles of   R(COO-)2

Mol. Wt. of   R(COO-)2 is 0.145/(0.355/216) = 88

Mol. Wt. of  R(COOH)2 is 88+2 = 90

0.2 g of Acid------0.2/90= 0.002222 moles

0.002222 moles acid-------- 0.04*2/18 = 0.004444 moles H--------0.195/44 = 0.00444 moles of C

1 mole acid------2 moles H-------2 moles C

(COOH)2 is the Molecular formula of the Organic acid.
