Molar conc.

  1. Feb 12, 2004 #1
    If 25 mL of 12 M HCl are added to 475 mL of distilled water, what is the molar concentration of the diluted hydrochloric acid?

    c=.63 M HCL

    book has the answer as .60 M HCL
    Isn't the answer .63?

    Think about this a moment; you've asserted something different from the problem statement, "25 mL of 12 M HCl are added to 475 mL ---."

    Your total volume is 500ml, and you have 12 moles. 12moles/.500L is???

    this seems to work, .30 mol/.500L = .60 M

    No u have 12/40=0.3 moles
    and now volume is 500mL

    therefore molarity= 0.3*2=0.60

    it is right way fish
