Problem: Suppose 50.0 mL of 0.250 M CoCl2 solution is added to 25.0 mL of 0.350 M NiCl2 solution. Calculate the concentration, in moles per liter, of each of the ions present after mixing. Assume that the volumes are additive.

FREE Expert Solution

Recall:

Molarity(M)=moles solute (mol)liter solution (L)

Total volume of the solution = 50.0 mL + 25.0 mL = 75.0 mL

The concentration of each of the ions in solution is:
