A 0.500g scantling is analyzed spectrophotometrically for manganese by dissolving it in acid and transferring to a 250 mL flask and diluting to body. Three aliquots ae analyzed by transferring 50 mL portions with a pipet to 500 mL Erlenmeyer flask and reacting with an oxidizing personation, potassium peroxydisulfate, to apply the manganese to permanganate. After reaction, these are quantitatively infectious to 250 mL bodytric flasks, tender to body and measured spectrophotometrically.
By similarity with standards, the mean force of the latest disconnection is steadfast to be 1.25 x 10^-5M. What is the percent manganese in the scantling?
