How do you calculate the number of mL you would use to prepare 5.0 L of 0.20 M NaOH from a 5.23 M stock solution.

use the equation drbob222 gave you before. its the right one. you may have to convert the 5 L to mL first though for it to work or understand that ur answer is in L and convert it. one or the other

i got a huge number, is 191.20 correct?

yep

Yes. After all you're making 5,000 mL.

it makes sense too because if you think about it you are making a 5.0 L solution and 191.20 mL isnt even 1/5 of a liter

ok thank you!! i posted a new question! i have a test tomorrow morning and im doing a practice exam and a few questions stumped me!!
