Calculate the amount of 8% acetic acid needed to combine with water to make 600 ml of 3.5% acetic acid.

  • MATH - ,

    if you need x ml of acid,

    .08x + 0(600-x) = .035*600
    x = 262.5

    check:
    .08*262.5 = 21
    .035*600 = 21

    so, if you mix 262.5ml of 8% acid with 337.5ml of water (0% acid), there is the same amount of acid in both mixtures
