    What mass of solute do you need to make 50 ml of a 20 g/L solution?


    20 g/L = 1 g/50ml

    Answer: 1 g

    How many grams of solute are there in 300 g of .50% NaCl solution

    [tex].50%=\frac{x_g}{300_{ml}} * 100[/tex]
    x=1.5 grams

    How'd I do?

    How many grams of solute are needed to prepare 250 ml of a 10 mol/L HCl solution

    1 mol of HCl=36 grams (Cl=35 + H=1)


    2.5 mol x 36 = 90 grams

    The second is okay.I wish you had put the zero before the dot,as it's highly misleading... :grumpy:

    The last is okay.
