1000 g of a 50% (mass percentage) nitric acid solution is to be diluted to 20%(mass percentage) nitric acid solution. How many liters of water should be added to the starting solution? Please show me the detail answer

  • Chemistry - ,

    The dilution formula works as well for percent by mass as it does for molarity and normality.
    %1 x grams1 = %2 x grams2.
    Calculate grams 2, then subtract mass HNO3 in the 50% soln to see how much water to add.
