How many grams of sucrose would you dissolve in water for a total volume of 500mL to make a 5% solution?

  • chemistry -

    5 percent by weight? When you cite percent in solutions, historically pharmacists have messed up our thinking.
    5% can be 5% weight/weight, weight/volume, or volume/volume.
    (pharmacists make no distinction on weight or mass, duh)
    Yes, confusing, but you have to specify.
