Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by . on Tuesday, January 26, 2010 at 9:34am.

An aqueous solution contains 2.0 % NaCl by mass.

(1) Calculate the molality (NOT molarity!) of the solution.
(2) Calculate the mole fraction of the solution.


I know how to solve both but the problem is missing one other compound/element.

I know that molality is moles per kg of the solvent but I don't know what the solvent is. Is it water? Then how many kg of water?

As for the mole fraction, I know that number of moles of NaCl divided by the total number of moles but where will I get that other mole? Is it water again? How many will I use?


Thanks!
