Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Read the article Sect 3: Special Properties of Water and Aqueous Solutions How many milliliters of 5.5 M NaOH are needed to prepare 300 mL of 1.2 M NaOH? 1. 65 mL correct 2. 300 mL 3. 100 mL 4. 200 mL Explanation: You dilute a solution whenever you add solvent to a solution. Adding solvent results in a solution of lower concentration. You can calculate the concentration of a solution following a dilution by applying this equation: M 1 V 1 = M 2 V 2 , where M is molarity, V is volume, and the subscripts 1 and 2 refer to the initial and final values: V 1 = M 2 V 2 M 1 = (1 . 2 M) (300 mL) 5 . 5 M = 65 . 4545 mL To prepare the 1.2 M NaOH solution, you pour 65 mL of 5.5 M NaOH into your con- tainer and add water to obtain a final volume of 300 mL....
