An aqueous solution of Na2SO4 has a molal concentration of 0.293 mol kg-1. Its density is 1.0350 g mL-1.

Calculate the molar concentration of Na2SO4.
----- mol L-1

Calculate the mass percent of Na2SO4 in the solution.
------- %

What is the mole fraction of Na2SO4 in the solution?
-----
How to work out , i cant figure it out

  1. 0.293 m = 0.293 moles/kg solvent.
    Take enough to have 0.293 mole which will have 1 kg solvent.
    0.293 moles x molar mass Na2SO4 = about 41 g (but you need to do it exactly). The solution thus has a mass of 1000 + 41 = 1041. Use the density to convert to mL, then to L and moles/L = M

  2. 0.293 m = 0.293 moles Na2SO4/1000 g solvent.
    0.293 x 142.043 = about 42 grams solute (you need to do it accurately). The solution has a mass of 41+1000 = about 1041 grams. mass percent = (mass solute/g soln)*100 = (41/1041)*100 = ??

    0.293 moles Na2SO4.
    moles H2O = 1000/18.015 = about 55.
    Total moles = 55+0.293.
    mole fraction Na2SO4 = (moles Na2SO4/total moles)

  4. thanks dr bob... this really helped :) but in question 1 & 2, why did u add 41 to 1000? where did u get the 1000 from?! thanks :)

  7. Question one answer, extended explanation :
    divide 1041 g by the density (1.0350) to get volume- 1,006.382609mL
    then use formula c = n/v
    c = 41.606 / (142 x 1,006.382609)
    = 0.000291141 mol/mL x 1000
    = 0.291141756 mol/L

  8. DrBob's solution for the molar fraction is wrong. I did what he said moles Na2SO4/ total moles: 0.293/55.802.... to get 0.00250679 and in my online quiz it was wrong.

  10. I don't understand how we can know the total moles of solution if the question doesn't specify what the aqueous solution is. Do we always assume its water??
