The equivalent weight of a species if acts as oxidant or reduction should be derived by :
Eq. weight of oxidant or reductant
During chemical reactions, equal equivalents of one species react with same number of equivalents of other species giving same number of equivalent of products. However this is not true for reactants if they react in terms of moles. Also Molarity can be converted to normality by multiplying the molarity with valence or ‘n’ factor.
Equivalent weight of N2 and NH3 in the change N2→ NH3 respectively is:
