Question #27284

How many grams of beryllium chloride are needed to make 125mL of a 0.050 M solution

Expert's answer

The equation needed to calculate theconcentration is

C(M) = n(mol) / V(L)

C - concentration (M)

n - amount of BeCl

V - volume (L)

n(mol) = C(M) x V(L) = 0.050 x 0.125 = 6.25 x 10^-3 mol

The mass of BeCl

m(g) = n(mol) x M

M

m(BeCl

Answer: m(BeCl

C(M) = n(mol) / V(L)

C - concentration (M)

n - amount of BeCl

_{2}(mol)V - volume (L)

n(mol) = C(M) x V(L) = 0.050 x 0.125 = 6.25 x 10^-3 mol

The mass of BeCl

_{2}ism(g) = n(mol) x M

_{W}(g/mol)M

_{W}(BeCl_{2}) = 9.01 + 2 x 35.5 = 80.01 g/molm(BeCl

_{2}) = 6.25 x 10^-3 x 80.01 = 0.500 gAnswer: m(BeCl

_{2}) = 0.500g
