Problem: How many grams of sulfur (S8) must be dissolved in 100.0 g naphthalene (C10H8) to make a 0.13 m solution?

FREE Expert Solution
  • Molality can be calculated as:

  • We will be solving for the moles of Sfirst and then mass of S8 using its molar mass

  • Molar mass of S8 is:

S - 32.07 (8) = 256.56 g/mol
