Question #56162

Calcium chloride, CaCl2, is commonly used as an electrolyte in sports drinks and other beverages, including bottled water. A solution is made by adding 5.00 g of CaCl2 to 60.0 mL of water at 25∘C. The density of the solvent at that temperature is 0.997 g/mL. Calculate the mole percent of CaCl2 in the solution.

Express your answer as a percent to three significant figures.

This is what they are looking for: mole/mole percent (mol/mol) =???

I entered this....and it was wrong?

ANSWER 1: Deduction: -3%

mole/mole percent (mol/mol) =

1.49%

Thanks!
