Homework Help: Density of a 10.4 M CH3OH

  1. Sep 9, 2008 #1
    Would anyone be able to help me with this question?
    The density of a 10.4 M CH3OH (methanol) solution is 0.858 g/mL. What is the molality (m) of this solution? H2O is the solvent.
    Anhy help is appreciated cheers.

    Re: Molality

    Start with definitions of both molarity and molality. See what and how you can calculate from the information given, what you need to find out molality.

    See percentage to molality conversion example for hints on the general approach to this type of the question.

    Re: Molality

    mate1000, Borek gave you advice on how to start. You must know and use the definitions of molarity and molality. The rest is simple unit conversions and simple concentration information. We posters on this board are expected not to plainly answer questions with full solution until the original questioner has tried to solve and shown some effort to do so.
