The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that adults ingest less than 2.4 g of sodium per day. How many liters of softened water, containing a sodium concentration of 6.0×10−2 percent sodium by mass, have to be consumed to exceed the FDA recommendation? (Assume a water density of 1.0 g/ml).

  • Chemistry -

    0.06% Na = 0.0006 g Na/mL (since the density is 1.0 g/mL).
    So 0.0006 g Na/mL x ?? mL = 2.4 g Na.
    Solve for mL and convert to L.
    Check my thinking.
