Potassium Nitrate USPPotassium Nitrate
Potassium nitrate [7757-79-1].
Potassium Nitrate contains not less than 99.0 percent and not more than 100.5 percent of KNO3.
Identification— A solution of it responds to the tests for Potassium and for Nitrate.
Chloride— A 500-mg portion of it shows no more chloride than corresponds to 0.21 mL of 0.020 N hydrochloric acid (0.03%).
Sulfate— Dissolve 100 mg of Potassium Nitrate in 10 mL of water, add 15 mL of 6 N hydrochloric acid, and evaporate to dryness on a steam bath. To the residue so obtained add 7 mL of 6 N hydrochloric acid, and evaporate to dryness on a steam bath. Dissolve the residue so obtained in about 35 mL of water and, if necessary, neutralize with hydrochloric acid using litmus paper indicator. Filter, if necessary, to obtain a clear test solution. This test solution shows no more sulfate than corresponds to 0.10 mL of 0.020 N sulfuric acid (0.1%).
Arsenic: 3 ppm.

They who love thee on this earth, keep calling on thee and chanting thy beads
Lest thou forgetest.
They assign the credit of their hard work to your blessings
They keep you amused.
They come to thy temple with baskets of fruits, as if you were a glutton
They deny the same to their children.
They offer you milk for a bath and burn the ghee
They hardly understand the meaning of it.
They bring gold and diamonds. They come with beating of drums
They love to advertise their offerings.
They offer you a small bribe as advance for booty, called lottery
They love to dream.
I do not bow down at your door
I do not bargain for booty
Your promise of the heaven does not lure me
Your hell-fire does not scare me
I do not even know the proper method of prayer
I do not offer any thing to you
Ages have gone by and I have not seen you my lord
Yet my love for you keeps waiting for you
