Given 50 ml of concentrated nitric acid.The density of the concentrated acid is 1.42 g/ml and is 70% HNO3 by wt. Calc. the molality of the conc. acid.

  • chemistry -

    density 1.42 g/mL. Then 1000 mL has a mass of 1.42 g/mL x 1000 = 1420 grams
    That is 70% HNO3 so g HNO3 is
    1420 x 0.70 = about 994 g. The rest of it is water.
    g H2O = 1420-994 = about 426 g = 0.426 kg.
    mol HNO3 = 994/molar mass HNO3.
    m = mols HNO3/kg solvent.
