  1. The units given are in mol/L or M

    Solve for moles:

    0.25mol/L= x moles/1.75L

    Solve for x moles:

    x moles=1.75L*(0.25mol/L)

    x moles * molecular weight of sodium phosphate (163.94 g/mol)= mass or Sodium Phosphate

    No more than two significant figures in answer.

  2. I believe the answer provided by this solution is three times too large. The problem asks for grams Na3PO4 to provide 0.25 M SODIUM ION. Since there are 3 Na ions per Na3PO4 molecule you need to divide 0.25/3 to begin with, then proceed s in the above.
