### Help with a problem!

Question: 5.00g of KMno4 is dissolved in a 150mL flask of water. If 20ml of this solution is removed and placed in a new 2nd 250ml flask and filled with water what is the concentration of the solution in the 2nd flask? Molar masses: K(39.10g/mol) Mn(54.94g/mol) and O(16.00g/mol)
Can someone explain the steps of this problem

1. Find the concentration of the first solution: convert grams of KMnO4 to moles (using molar mass; add up the molar mass of each atom) and divide by first volume
2. Find the moles transferred to the second flask: multiply the concentration of the first solution by the transferred volume
3. Find the concentration of the second solution: Divide the moles transferred by the second volume

Return to “Molarity, Solutions, Dilutions”
