How many mL would it take to prepare 500mL of a 0.10M Nitric Acid (HNO3) solution from a stock solution that is 69.0% pure and has a specific gravity of 1.42g/mL?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i dont know how to go about specific gravity... but Im guessing you use that to calculate the molarity then you can simply do M1V1=M2V2 where you would plug the molarities and one volume to get the other.. hope that helps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think you have to use the purity and specific gravity to find the molarity, i'll see what i can come up with

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well solution specific gravity is 1.42g/mL, 69.0% pure HNO3, so HNO3 specific gravity is .9798g/mL. Need molarity of HNO3 now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh wait.. you can use the Molecular weight of HNO3 H=1 , N=14, O=16 (16x3=48) add them all up you get 63 g/mole and for molarity you need moles/litre so what you do here is .9798 g/ml / 63g/mole the g's will cancel out and you will get your molarity in moles/ml just divide that by 1000 to get it in litres and then you can solve the Q !

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so .9798 g/mL divided by 63g/mole = 64.29 moles/mL = .06429 Molarity? (moles/L) so then (500mL)/0.10M x (needed amt)/.06429M = 320.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok.. when i divided .9798 by 63 i got 0.0156 moles/ml then divided that by a 1000 I got 1.56E5 (0.0000156) then took that did M1V1=M2V2 M1V1/M2=V2 so (0.10M)(500)/1.56E5 =3.205E6 ml but thats a very big number lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your answer however gives a reasonable amount... maybe I screwed up my calculations..0_o

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no depends on how you divided the .9798, i got 64.29

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i thought mine was incorrect, but your number is too big, mine is reasonable but i thought my math was wrong :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0plus i think it's 320, then you add water to get 500mL
