0.5 g of CaCO3
was dissolved in HCl and the solution was made to 500 ml with distilled water.
50ml of this solution required 25ml of EDTA solution for titration. 50ml of hard water sample
required 20 ml of EDTA. After boiling 50ml of boiled water sample required 15ml of same
EDTA calculate each type of hardness in mg/l?
