The question is as following:
5cm3 of oleic acid are mixed with 95 cm3 of methanol. 5 cm3 of this mixture are
then diluted with a further 95cm3 of methanol, achieving an overall dilution of oleic
acid of a factor 400. A method is perfected of creating identical droplets; counting
out 97 such droplets gives a total volume of 1 cm3. What is the volume of oleic acid
contained in one droplet of the mixture?
The Attempt at a Solution
I have absolutely no idea on how to solve this problem. Usually problems indicate some quantity which we can substitute into an equation.
Any tips will be greatly appreciated.
