1)
If 45 mL of water are added to 250 mL of a 0.75 M K2SO4 solution, what will the
molarity of the diluted solution be?
(0.75 M)(250 mL) = M2 (295 mL)
M2 = (0.75 M)(250 mL) = 0.64 M
(295 mL)
2)
If water is added to 175 mL of a 0.45 M KOH solution until the volume is 250 mL, what
will the molarity of the diluted solution be?
(0.45 M)(175 mL) = M2 (250 mL)
M2 = (0.45 M)(175 mL) = 0.32 M
(250 mL)
3)
How much 0.075 M NaCl solution can be made by diluting 450 mL of 9.0 M NaCl?
(9.0 M)(450 mL) = (0.075 M)V2
V2 = (9.0 M)(450 mL) = 54,000 mL = 54 L
(0.075 M)
4)
If 550 mL of a 3.50 M KCl solution are set aside and allowed to evaporate until the
volume of the solution is 275 mL, what will the molarity of the solution be?
(3.50 M)(550 mL) = M2 (275 mL)
M2 = (3.50 M)(550 mL) = 7.0 M
(275 mL)
5)
How much water would need to be added to 750 mL of a 2.8 M HCl solution to make a
1.0 M solution?
(2.8 M)(750 mL) = (1.0 M)V2
V2 = (2.8 M)(750 mL) = 2100 mL
(1.0 M)
2100 mL – 750 mL = 1350 mL = 1.4 L
