ExperimentEstimation of Ferrous iron usingExternal IndicatorAim : Estimate the amount of ferrous iron in the whole of the given ferrous solutionusing external indicatorPrinciple : The estimation in basedon the oxidation of Ferrousiron to ferric iron bypotassium dichromate in acidmedium
K₂Cr₂O₇ + 4H₂SO₄ K₂SO₄ Cr₂ (SO₄)₃ +4H₂O + [O]2FeSO+ HSO+ [O]Fe (SO)+ HO The External Indicator Potassium Ferricyanidewill give blue colour with Fe²⁺ only. So at the
end point the solution does not give a bluishcolourisation with potassium Ferricyanide.Procedurea)Preparation of Standard PotassiumdichromateWeighed about 0.65g of K₂Cr₂O₇ is accuratelytransferred into a 250ml standard flask. It isdissolved in water and made upto the mark.b)Estimation of Ferrous iron The given solution is made up to 100ml. 20mlof the made up to 100 ml 20 ml of the madeup solution in pipetted out in to a cleanbeaker about 20 mlDilute sulphuric acid in added it in thendiluted to 150 ml and titratedAgain standerd potassium dichromate solutiontaken in the burettedDrops of the solution from the beaker are mixperiodically with indicator drops placed on aporcelain plate or tile the procedure incontinued till a
Drop from the beaker does not give bluecolour then the range in noted The beaker is then washed and another 20mlquantity of solution takenIn to the black with vigorous shaking up to theminimum of the range already noted.Subsequently 2 drops at a time are added andthe solution in the beaker is checked for thecompletion of the reaction. The procedure incontinued till a drop from the beaker does notgive tile or green colour with the indicatordrop titration are repeated till concordantvalues are attained .from the titer value theamount of ferrous iron in the what of thesolution can be calculated knowing that theequivalent wt off ferrous iron in 55-85ResultWeight of Fe²in the whale of the givensolution=---------g
