Determine which among the choices will produce 0.40 M NaCl using the formula for molarity

Recall that molarity is

Molarity = moles of soluteL of solution


Calculate each molarity produced by each choice where the molar mass of NaCl is:

NaCl             1 Na × 22.99 g/mol Na = 22.99 g/mol
                     1 Cl × 35.45 g/mol Cl = 35.45 g/mol
                               Sum = 58.44 g/mol

A. 29.2 g, 500 mL (1 mL = 1x10-3 L)
