Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you sure the question said calcium hydroxide? The solubility of Ca(OH)2 is less than 0.2 g/100 ml in aqueous H2O, so it is impossible to have a density of 1.45g/mL. Do you mean 1050.0 g of Ca(OH)2 dissolved in 725 g of water, or 725 g of Ca(OH)2 dissolved in water to form 1050 g of solution? (It doesn't dissolve either way). It will not make a solution, but just a suspension (for whitewashing walls!) Perhaps NaOH or KOH would have that kind of solubility.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first sort out the given data it says the aqueous solution was 1050g which means that 1050g has water and Ca(OH)2 both. And they have said mass of water in that is 725g Since they have asked for the mass percentage we have to calculate the mass of Ca(OH)2 in the solution that would be 1050725 agree? So the mass of Ca(OJ)2 would be 325g Now calculate the mass percentage. \[\frac{ 325 }{ 1050 }* 100% =30.95%\]
