25g of NaCl is deissolved in 100g of water. what is the concentration in percentage by mass?
and mol/l ?( the density of the solution is 1.15g/ml)
Percent by mass of the solution= mass of NaCl/total mass= 25g of NaCl/25 g of NaCl +100g of H2O
Density =mass/volume, solve for volume
Solve for moles
moles of NaCl=25g of NaCl/58.44 g of NaCl/mol
Solve for Volume
mass/density=volume=125g of total solution/1.15g/ml=volume of total solution
The units for volume are in mL, so multiply that by 10^-3 to convert to L.
Molarity=moles/Liters=moles of NaCl/volume of total solution (L)
