According to the chemical reaction:

Cu(NO3)2 + Zn = Cu + Zn(NO3)2

From here, the amount of moles of copper produced in the reaction equals:

n(Cu) = m(Cu) / Mr(Cu) = 0.813 g / 63.546 = 0.0128 mol

Finally, the initial concentration of the copper nitrate solution equals:

c(Cu(NO3)2) = n(Cu(NO3)2) / V(Cu(NO3)2) = 0.0128 mol / 120 mL = 0.0128 mol / 0.120 L = 0.107 mol/L

Answer: 0.107 mol/L
