(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A solution is prepared by adding enough water to 185 grams of CsCl to form 1 liter of solution. What is the mass of the solution? The density of the solution is 1.182 g/mL.

2. Relevant equations

D= m/v

3. The attempt at a solution

D= 1.182 g/mL ----> 185 g CsCl / 1.182 g/ml = 156.5143824mL * 1L /1000L = 0.157L

but how do i find the mass? I am confused...? Isn't the mass of the solution just 185 grams?
