We’re being asked to calculate the mass percent of CdSO4 in a 1.0 molal aqueous CdSO4 solution.

Aqueous solution means that water is the solvent, hence CdSO4 is the solute.


Mass or weight percent (% by mass) is the percentage of a given element or compound within a solution. 

The equation used to calculate for mass percent is shown below:

mass percent = mass componenttotal mass×100
