Solutions & Solubility. Concentration. Concentrations of Solutions. Concentration of a solution is a measure of the amount of solute that is dissolved in a given quantity of solution. Dilute solution – contains a low concentration of solute.
Solutions & Solubility
Molarity (M) = moles of solute
liters of solution
Calculate the molarity when 2 mol of glucose is dissolved in 5 L of solution, divide the number of moles by the volume in liters.
2 mol glucose
5 L solution
= 0.4 mol/L = 0.4 M
1. A solution has a volume of 2.0L and contains 36.0g of glucose. If the molar mass of glucose is 180 g, what is the molarity of the solution?
2. A solution has a volume of 250 mL and contains 0.70 mol NaCl. What is its molarity?
3. How many moles of ammonium nitrate are in 335 mL of 0.425M NH4NO3?
4. How many moles of solute are in 250 mL of 2.0M CaCl2? How many grams of CaCl2 is this?
Moles of solute before dilution = moles of solute after dilution
M1× V1 = M2 × V2
You have the following stock solutions available: 2.00M NaCl, 4.00M KNO3 and 0.50M MgSO4. Calculate the volumes you must dilute to make the following solution.
5. 250.0 mL of 0.300M NaCl
6. 75.0 mL of 0.200M KNO3
7. 5.0 L of 0.2M MgSO4
Percent by volume (% v/v) = volume of solute × 100%
Percent mass / volume (% m/v) = mass of solute (g) × 100%
solution volume (mL)
Must be the same unit: mL or L
