A mixture of acetic acid (CH3CO2H; monoprotic) and oxalic acid (H2C2O4; diprotic) requires 27.15 mL of 0.100 M NaOH to neutralize it. When an identical amount of the mixture is titrated, 15.05 mL of 0.0247 M KMnO4 is needed for complete reaction. What is the mass percent of each acid in the mixture? (Acetic acid does not react with MnO4 equation for the reaction of oxalic acid with MnO4 given in Problem 4.133.)
