Problem: A solution of H2SO4(aq) with a molal concentration of 2.24 m has a density of 1.135 g/mL. What is the molar concentration of this solution?

FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to determine the molar concentration of a solution of H2SO4 (aq) with a molal concentration of 2.24 m and density of 1.135 g/mL


Recall that molarity and molality are given by:

Molarity = mol soluteL solutionMolality = mol solutekg solvent


We will do the following steps:

Step 1: Calculate mol of solute

Step 2: Calculate L of solution

Step 3: Calculate the molarity
