^{3}, hence the volume of 20 g of menthol is 20 g/(0.89 g/cm^{3})=22.47 cm^{3}. If 20 g ofmenthol become 1% of the solution, then the solution will weigh 20 g/1*100=2000 g and mass of waterwill be (2000-20) g=1980 g, the volume ofwater will be 1980 mL=1980 cm^{3}. The volume of the solution will be V(solution)=V(menthol)+V(water)==22.47 cm^{3}+1980 cm^{3}=2002.47 cm^{3}.Rachel12.08.15, 02:038. The pharmacist has asked you to weigh out 20 grams of menthol and dissolve it in sterile water to make a 5% solution. Later you are asked to change the concentration to a 1% solution to fill an order that was just received.

What will the final volume of a 1% solution be?
