  1. moles KNO3 = grams/molar mass
    Solve for moles.

    mass soln = volume x density = ??

    mass H2O = total mass soln - mass solute.

    molality = moles/kg solvent

  2. so correct me if i may be wrong...

    82.7gKNO3x1mol/101.11gKNO3=0.8179mol

    1.5Lx1000ml/1Lx1.05g/1mL=1575g

    1575-82.7=1492.3g

    0.8179mol/1.4923kg=0.54808molal?

  3. I agree but you have too many significant figures. You're allowed only 3.
