Solution: Calculate the mass of HCl (molar mass = 36.46 g/mol) in 5.00 mL of an HCl solution (density = 1.19 g/mL) that is 37.23% by mass HCl.

Solution: Calculate the mass of HCl (molar mass = 36.46 g/mol) in 5.00 mL of an HCl solution (density = 1.19 g/mL) that is 37.23% by mass HCl.

Problem

Calculate the mass of HCl (molar mass = 36.46 g/mol) in 5.00 mL of an HCl solution (density = 1.19 g/mL) that is 37.23% by mass HCl.

Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the mass of HCl in a 37.23% by mass HCl solution

And to do that we're going to use the mass percent formula shown below:

mass percent=mass componenttotal mass×100


Since we are dealing with a solution, we can rewrite the equation as:

% mass=mass solutemass solution×100


We don’t have the mass of the solution but we can calculate it using the volume and density of the solution.

volume solution (density) → mass solution
