If the density of ocean water at a depth of 1.00 x 104 m is 1.071 g/mL and if 20.0 g of water at that depth contains 197mg of potassium chloride, what is the molarity of potassium chloride in the sample? It wants it in M.

  1. what is the volume of 20 g of water?
    20 g /1.071 g/mL = 18.674 mL
    so
    197 *10^-3 g KCl /18.674*10^-3 L
    = 10.55 grams/liter

    Mol mass of KCl = 74.5 grams/mol

    (10.55 grams/Liter)/74.5 grams/mol
    = .142 mols/Liter
