Help with Textbook problem G.7

Postby Ellen Amico 2L » Thu Oct 31, 2019 1:20 pm

Not sure why I'm having trouble with this but I need some help on 7 from the textbook:
You need to prepare 510. g of an aqueous solution containing 5.45% KNO3 by mass. Describe how you would prepare the solution and what mass of each component you would use.

Multiply the percent of KNO3 by the total mass of the solution:

510 x 0.0545 = 27.8 g KNO3

Since the components of the solution are KNO3 and water, the remaining mass will be that of water.

510-27.8= 482.2g H2O
