The new standard for arsenate in drinking water, mandated by the Safe Drinking Water Act, requires that by January, 2006, public water supplies must contain no greater than 10 parts per billion arsenic.

Assuming that this arsenic is present as arsenate what mass of sodium arsenate would be present in a 1.10 sample of drinking water that just meets the standard?

    When you are asking a chemistry question the biggest gaffe of all is to omit the units. With no units on 1.10 there is no way to answer the question.

    Sorry. I didn't realize it wasn't there. it is 1.1 Liters.

    I think I searched every corner of google. But even I cannot find the answer to this question ?!!!

    So frustrating
