Stoichiometry : SolnStoich (4 Variations)


You are working in a forensic lab and are given a blood sample from a suspected drunk driver and asked to determine the person's blood alcohol level. The legal limit is 0.08% by mass in most states. You use the following reaction in your determination, assuming only the ethanol (C2H5OH) in the blood sample will react with the dichromate.
16H+(aq) + 2Cr2O72-(aq) + C2H5OH(l)4Cr3+(aq) + 11H2(l) + 2CO2(g)

If 14.6 mL of 0.10 M K2Cr2O7 are needed to react completely with 28 g of blood, what is the blood alcohol level of the driver?
