Test 1 Q.1

Postby Jonathan Marcial Dis 1K » Sun May 06, 2018 11:42 am

Anhydrous calcium chloride is a salt which is used increasing water hardness in swimming pools. A solution of CaCl2 is prepared by dissolving 4.00 g of salt to 1.00 L water. What is the concentration of chloride ions for the above solution?

b) The above solution is diluted with 1.00 L of 0.400 M potassium chloride, KCl solution. What is the concentration of chloride ions after the dilution?

Can someone please help with both parts. I get confused midway through a.

And here's my solution for B!

For these problems, plugging into the equation M = moles / volume is straightforward, but I think the hardest part is making sure you're using the right value for number of moles. Make sure to calculate the number of moles for the element you want by looking at its ratio within the given compound.
