AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS . Mole = Amount of a substance that has a mass in gramsnumerically equivalent to its molecular weight in Daltons.For example: To determine a mole of sucrose (C12H22O11).Calculate molecular weight:C = 12 Da 12 Da x 12 = 144 DaH = 1 Da 1 Da x 22 =
1. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS Solute Concentration
Molecular Weight = Sum of weight of all atoms in a
molecule (expressed in Daltons).
For example: Determine a mole of CH3COOH
CH3COOH 2 C 2 x 12 Da = 24
4 H 4 x 1 Da = 4
2 O 2 x 16 Da = 32
M.W. Da = 60 g/mol
2. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS Mole = Amount of a substance that has a mass in grams
numerically equivalent to its molecular weight in Daltons.
For example: To determine a mole of sucrose (C12H22O11).
Calculate molecular weight:
C = 12 Da 12 Da x 12 = 144 Da
H = 1 Da 1 Da x 22 = 22 Da
O = 16 Da 16 Da x 11 = 176 Da
Express it in grams (342 g).
3. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS Molarity = Number of moles of solute per liter of solution.
For example: To obtain 1 M sucrose solution, weigh out
342 g and add water up to 1L.
Advantage of measuring in moles:
1. Rescales weighing single molecules in Daltons to grams, which is more practical for laboratory use.
2. A mole of one substance has the same number of molecules as a mole of any other substance
(6.02 x 1023; Avogadro’s number).
3. Allows one to combine substances in fixed ratios of molecules
4. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS For example:
How much CH3COOH do you need to make 1 liter of a 2 M solution of CH3COOH?
Ask yourself these questions:
How many grams of this substance are in
1 mole of CH3COOH?
2. How many liters are you trying to prepare?
3. What is the ultimate concentration you are
trying to prepare (M)?
5. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS
60 grams/mole x 1 liter x 2 moles/liter =
120 g of CH3COOH is needed to prepare a
2 M solution.
6. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS For Example:
How much CaCl2 do you need to make 750 ml of
a 1.5 M CaCl2 solution?
How many grams/mole? 110 g/mol
How many liters? .750 L
What is M? 1.5 M
7. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS Answer:
110 g/mole x .750 L x 1.5 moles/liter =
You will need 123g of CaCl2
8. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS For Example:
You want to make a 10 M C6H12O6 solution. If you have 900 grams of C6H12O6, how much can you make?
How many grams/mole? 180 g/mol
What is the M desired? 10 M
How many grams total do you have to
work with? 900 grams
9. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS Answer:
You can make 0.5 L of a
10 M C6H12O6 solution
10. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS
What if the question would have asked for
a 2.5 M C6H12O6 solution? What about
a 4 M C6H12O6 solution?
11. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS Answer:
5 moles / 2.5 moles/liter = 2 L
5 moles / 4 moles/liter = 1.25 L
12. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS For Example:
What is the molar concentration of a NaOH solution where you have been given 60 grams of NaOH and ask to prepare a final volume of
What is the amount of grams/mole? =
How many grams do you have? 60 grams
What is your desired volume? 3 L
13. AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS Answer:
60 grams / 40 grams/mole = 1.5 mole
1.5 moles / 3 liters = 0.5 moles/liter
The molar concentration is 0.5 M.
14. Acids, Bases and pH Dissociation of Water Molecules (pH)
Occasionally, the hydrogen atom that is
shared in a hydrogen bond between two
water molecules, shifts from the oxygen
atom to which it is covalently bonded to the
unshared orbitals of the oxygen atom to which it is
