If 50kg of salt is mixed with 100 kg of water to form a 1500kg/m^3 solution, can I find the concentration of salt by subtracting the density of water which is 1000kg/m^3, or do I have to equate it like this: 50/((50+100)/1500)=500kg/m^3 ? Is the volume of salt negligible so that the volume of solution equals the volume of water?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
