In reverse osmosis, water flows out of a salt solution until the osmotic pressure of the solution equals the applied pressure. If a pressure of 47.0 bar is applied to seawater, what will be the final concentration of the seawater at 20 °C when reverse osmosis stops?
Mc=?

Assuming that seawater has a total ion concentration (a.k.a colligative molarity) of 1.10 Mc, calculate how many liters of seawater are needed to produce 64.8 L of fresh water at 20 °C with an applied pressure of 47.0 bar.
L=?
