### Concentration- Calculating Volume

I don't understand how to calculate the volume of the solution the researcher needs for problem G11 of the 6th edition. How do I know which is the initial volume of the problem is if I am just given the initial mass and final mass?

You are given the initial molarity and the final mass. Recall that molarity is moles/liter, and the problem states the moles you want. If you divide moles by moles/liter, you are left with the volume. Always start by looking at the units of what's given to help you start the problem.

When asked to look for Molarity/volume/moles, one of the common equation that we use is M=moles/volume. You are given the moles and molarity, which means you can use this formula to find the volume.

For the beginning of these problems, I always find it helpful to write down new formulas (especially because it helps with my memory) without anything plugged into them. Alike to what Chem_Mod has said, doing this and finding what data is available helps you make a connection and forwards your problem solving.

When giving our responses, when do we have to use SI units?
