A 0.674 M cobalt(II) chloride (CoCl2) solution is prepared with a total volume of 0.0750 L. The molecular weight of CoCl2 is 128.9 g/mol. What mass of CoCl2 (in grams) is needed for the solution?

Express the answer using 3 significant figures.

Solution:

Molarity of CoCl2 solution = Moles of CoCl2 / Solution volume

Moles of CoCl2 = Mass of CoCl2 / Molecular weight of CoCl2

Molarity of CoCl2 solution = Mass of CoCl2 / (Molecular weight of CoCl2 × Solution volume)

Therefore,

Mass of CoCl2 = Molarity of CoCl2 solution × Molecular weight of CoCl2 × Solution volume

Mass of CoCl2 = (0.674 mol L-1) × (128.9 g mol-1) × (0.0750 L) = 6.5159 g = 6.52 g

Mass of CoCl2 = 6.52 g

Answer: 6.52 grams of CoCl2 is needed for the solution.
