  1. Is that 25.0% solution by mass? If so, then 25.0% means we have 25.0 g Al2(SO4)3 in 100 g solution. With a density of 1.75 g/mL, this 100 g soln has a volume of 100/1.75 = 57.14 mL. Thus, 40 mL will contain,
    25.0g x (40.0/57.14) = ?? g Al2(SO4)3

    Hi, the question is: in each reaction, identify what have been oxidised and reduced. The equation is: 2Al + 3H2SO4 ---> Al2(SO4)3 + 3H2 I am confused about the Al2(SO4)3 I know what oxides and reductions us I just don't understant
