To what volume should you dilute 131 mL of an 8.20 M CuCl2 solution so that 49.0 mL of the diluted solution contains 4.53g CuCl2 ?

Molar mass of CuCl2 is 134.5 g mol^-1

so solution needs to contain

4.53 g / 134.5 g mol^-1
=0.03368 mole

concentration is

0.049 L/0.03368 mole
=1.455 molar

thus we need to dilute the 8.20 M solution by a factor
8.20 M/1.455 M= 5.636

so the new total volume is

131 ml x 5.636
=738.4 ml

check on the concentration

old solution contains
131 x 8.20 mmoles = 1074 mmoles

new solution contains
1.455 x 738.4 mmole = 1074 mmole

Thank you for all the detail, but i'm still confused......so 738.4mL is the answer?

  • chemistry -

    It doesn't help us help you if you simply say you are confused without telling us what you understand, what you don't understand, and if possible, why you don't understand.

  • chemistry -

    the second part is moles/volume not volume/moles
