Mass of solute + solvent = mass of solution?

  1. May 3, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    10g of CaFl2 is disolved in 100 grams of water, what is mass/mass concentration

    2. Relevant equations
    c = mass of solute/mass of solution

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Would it be 10/100 = 0.1 or 10/110 = 0.091

    10/110, mass of the solution is a sum of masses of all its components.
