There are a number of ways to express concentration. You have seen Molarity Mole fraction Mass percentage For expressing the composition of a compound Can be used for solutions, as well
Background image of page 2
All concentration units are fractions The numerator contains the quantity of solute The denominator is the quantity of either solution or solvent They differ in the units used to express these two quantities

Conversion of most concentration units to molarity usually involve the density of the solution The density of a 12.0% sulfuric acid (H 2 SO 4 , molar mass = 98.08 g/mol) solution is 1.080 g/mL. What is the molarity of this solution?

For most substances there is a limit to the quantity of solute that dissolves in a specific quantity of the solvent. A dynamic equilibrium exists between the solute particles in solution, and undissolved solute. Sugar (s) Sugar (aq)

Δ H soln = Δ 1 + Δ 2 + Δ 3 The enthalpy of solution may be either negative (left) or positive (right)

A decrease in enthalpy is an important factor in causing spontaneous change However, many endothermic processes are spontaneous, suggesting another cause of spontaneity. An increase in disorder also favors spontaneous change
