Answer;

The molar mass of metal hydroxide = 121.66 g/ mole

The formula is Sr(OH)2

Explanation;

M(OH)2 + 2 HCl = MCl2 + 2 H2O  

Moles of the acid = 2.5 x 56.9 / 1000 = 0.14225  

Therefore; moles of hydroxide at the eq point = 0.0711 moles  

These have a mass of 8.65g

Thus; mass of 1 mole = 8.65 / 0.0711

         = 121.66 g / mole  

That means the compound is Sr (OH)2 ..
