HW 11-117

Postby Ning_Yao_1B » Sun Nov 27, 2016 2:10 pm

Can anyone explain what does the solution manual mean for 11-117 (f)?
"Because water is a liquid, it is by definition present at unit concentration, so changing the amount of water will not affect the reaction. As long as the glucose solution is dilute, its concentration can be considered unchanged. "
What does unit concentration mean? and what does the second part mean? does it mean that the concentration of glucose solution will be unchanged by adding water?

Because the glucose solution is considered very dilute, the change in solvent concentration due to water would be so insignificant that it can be ignored.
