Molarity (Fundamental G, Problem 5b)

Postby Abby Ellstrom 1I » Mon Oct 02, 2017 4:00 pm

A student prepared a solution of sodium carbonate by adding 2.111 g of the solid to a 250.0-mL volumetric flask and adding water to the mark. Some of this solution was transferred to a buret. What volume of solution should the student transfer into a flask to obtain 4.98 mmol CO3^2- ion?

I used the M1V1=M2V2 equation.
0.00498 mol CO3^2- / 0.079 M = 63.02 mL

However the answer is 62.05 mL, anyone have any suggestions?

If you don't round the molarity (I used 0.07967 M) then you get 0.0625 L, or 62.5 mL, which appears to be the right answer
