how to prepare and calculate 10%,20% and 30% of phosphoric acid from the concentrated? Meaning that if 10% = 10%phosporic acid+90% of water. let say i want to prepare in volume of 250ml.
Melting point: 42.35 °C
Density: 1.88 g/cm³
Molar mass: 98 g/mol
I don't get it. What's to calculate?
10% phosphoric acid = 10g H3PO4 + 90 g H2O or 10g/100 g soln. You want about 250 grams of solution so
10g x (250/100) = 25 g H3PO4
This won't be exactly 250 mL; you could take that into account if you knew the density of the 10% solution.
50 LITER WATER HOW MUCH WATER
