Problem: Water treatment plants commonly use chlorination to destroy bacteria. A byproduct is chloroform (CHCl3), a suspected carcinogen, produced when HOCl, formed by reaction of Cl2 and water, reacts with dissolved organic matter. The United States, Canada, and the World Health Organization have set a limit of 100. ppb of CHCl3 in drinking water. Convert this concentration into molarity, molality, mole fraction, and mass percent.
