Erin must perform a science experiment. She needs to dissolve 10 g of salt in 250 ml of water. She measures the water incorrectly and dissolves the 10 g of salt in 350 ml of water. Now she has no more salt. Explain what Erin can do to make the solution accurate.

• science - ,

She could add more salt.

Solve this proportion to find how much salt is needed in 350 ml.

250 / 350 = 10 / x

• science - ,

She can't add more salt because she has no more salt.

• science - ,

Oops! Sorry. I didn't read the entire question.

The only other solution I see is to let the excess water evaporate.

• science - ,

So if she lets the water evaporate, she can use the remaining salt to use it in another cip with 250 ml of water

• science - ,

She only needs to let the excess water (100 ml) evaporate.

• science - ,

How can she make sure its 100 ml?

• science - ,

She can note the amount of salt and water in a flask marked in ml.
