  1. In a liter you have .1 mol of HCl
    .1 * (35.5 + 1) = 3.65 grams/liter
    so in half a liter you have 1.825 grams of HCl

  2. There is nothing wrong with Damon's response but I do these slightly differently. Chemistry thinks in mols. So we ask ourselves "How many mols do I need?" That's
    mols = M x L = 0.1 x 0.500 = 0.05
    Then mols = grams/molar mass
    0.05 = g/36.5 and solve for g = 36.5 x 0.05 = 1.825. If your chem prof is picky about significant figures s/he will tell you that's too many and you should round that number to 1.82.
