What volume of physiological saline solution (90% by weight NaCl, in water) would give you a gram of salt when evaporated?

  • organic chemistry -

    Basically you need to assume that there are 100g of solution.
    Therefore, if you have 90% NaCl in water, then you would have 90g of NaCl and 10g of water.
    Using the density equation, d= g/mL
    Plug in the value for grams NaCl and then the density which is about 1.694.
    1.694=90g/ ml
    mL= 90g/1.694
    53.1 mL NaCL

    That is how I would have done it.
