### G.11 / Volumes for Solutions

Posted:

**Tue Apr 10, 2018 4:18 pm**So an example of this came up in G 11: A medical researcher investigating the properties of intravenous solutions prepared a solution containing 0.278 m C6H12O6 (glucose). What volume of solution should the researcher use to provide 4.50 mmol C6H12O6?

For this problem I understand that 0.278 is my M initial and 4.50 mmol (so .0045 mol) is my M final. For questions like these though do you always assume your V final is going to be 1 liter unless otherwise stated and you are finding the V initial to give you 1 liter of .0045 solution?
