lead is a toxic meatal that affects the central nervous system. a Pb-contaminated water sample contains 0.0011% Pb by mass. What vilume of the water in milliliters contains 115g of Pb? (assume that the density of the solution is 1.0g/ml

  • chemistry -

    0.0011% by mass means that for every 100 grams of solution (water), there is 0.0011 grams of lead.

    By proportions noting 1 ml of water weighs 1 g:
    100 ml : 0.0011 g
    x ml : 115 g

    So by cross multiplication:
    x = 100*115/0.0011=10454545 ml
    = 10454.545 l

    I obtained the same number; I would express it as 1.0E4L to two significant figures.

    Thanks Dr. Bob, I forgot about that!
