What is the concentration, in percent (v/v) of a solution containing 50mL of diethyl ether (C4 H10 O) in a 2.5L of solution?

  • Chemistry -

    v/v = 50 mL / 2500 mL x 100 = 2.0% v/v

  • Chemistry -

    Wouldnt it be 50mL/2550mL x 100 ??

  • Chemistry -

    No, the problem says 2.5 L OF SOLUTION which is 2,500 mL OF SOLUTION.

  • Chemistry -
