Having a little trouble tackling this one.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"What is the concentration of a 500 ml solution if, when diluted to a volume of 2 Liters, its new concentration becomes 20 g/L?"

Here what I did, all in ml.

[tex]\frac{x}{500+1500}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{x}{2000}=\frac{20}{1000}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{20*2000}{1000}=40=x[/tex]

[tex]\frac{40}{2000}=\frac{10}{500}[/tex]

Obviously the anwser cant be 10g/500ml, can someone help me out?

Thanks
