Kjeldahl's method

% of  N =\frac{14\times 2(V-\frac{V_1}{2})\times 100\times m }{1000\times m}

V= Vol \: of\: H_2SO_4

V_1= Vol \: of\: NaOH

m= mass \:of\:O.C

m= molarity

given \:m=0.75g

\frac{v-\frac{v_1}{2}}{m}= 10\:ml

\eta =1mol/l

% of N \frac{14\times 2\times 10\times 100\times 1}{1000\times 0.75} \:=37.33 %
