Imagine that you have been asked to prepare 500ml of a 0.25 mol L solution of Sodium Hydroxide, NaOH. Describe how you would prepare this solution. Include any calculations that you would perform.

I assume you meant 0.25 moles/L.
M = moles/L
0.25 = moles/0.500 L
moles = 0.125 moles.
Then moles = grams/molar mass
molar mass NaoH = 40 g/mole
grams = 0.125 x 40 = ??

So you want to place ?? g NaoH in a 500 mL volumetric flask, dissolve in some water, then make to the mark with distilled water.

amazing help - this is what I got too however they also want me to explain the steps I would take to prepare this solution. I'm using a graduated cylinder to measure the sodium hydroxide and need to convert the 5 grams to ml. I'm not sure the steps to take. Do I use the molar concentration formula with Vi x 0.125 mol/L = .500L x 0.25 mol/L ? Doing this doesn't seem right to me because I get the answer 1 L. Please let me know. Thank you so much for your help, it really was appreciated and helped me verify my work.
