A 0.227-M solution of X (M m = 195 g/mol) has a density of 0.959 g/ml. What is the molality of X in the solution? Given Concentration Unit (GCU): 0.227 mol X / 1 L of soln Desired Concentration Unit (DCU): mol X / kg of solvent Note: we have mol X in both, so problem is effectively that of converting 1 L solution to mass of solvent. 1. Since GCU is expressed per L of solution, a convenient “size” sample is 1.0 L. Thus, 0.227 mol X. 2. The only information we have about the solution is the density, allowing us to convert volume of soln to mass soln. 1L * (0.959g/ml)*(1000mL/1L) = 959 g or 0.959 kg of solution. 3. mass of solution = 0.959 kg = mass of solvent + mass of solute . Since we need kg of solvent in the DCU, we must obtain mass of solute. 4. The only information given about the solute is the molar mass. As we have mol X, we convert: 0.227 mol X * (195 g/mol) * (1kg/1000g) = 0.0443kg solute. 5.
