We’re being asked to determine an expression that represents mass percent of H2SO4 in 2.00 m aqueous H2SO4 solution.
Recall that molality is the ratio of the moles of solute and the mass of solvent (in kilograms).
In other words:
Recall the mass percent formula shown below:
Since we are dealing with a solution, we can rewrite the equation as:
Which of the following represents the mass percent of H2SO4 (MM = 98) in a 2.00 m aqueous H2SO4 solution?
