Examples of Solubility 1. Water solubility of Diazepam (VALIUM ) reported to be 50 mg/L 2. NOTE: The solubility classification is based on the weight of SOLVENT required to dissolve 1.0 g of SOLUTE 3. Therefore need to convert 50 mg/L to corresponding units: 50 mg/L = 50 mg Diazepam / 1000 mL of Water NOTE: Density of Water 1.0 g /mL (0.997 g / mL) 50 mg Diazepam/L 50 mg Diazepam • 1.0 g / 1000 mg = 0.05 g 0.05 g Diazepam/Liter 0.05 g X = 1 X = 20 50 mg Diazepam 20 = 1.0 g Diazepam = 1.0 g Diazepam = 1.0 g Diazepam Liter 20 20 Liters 20,000 mL 20,000 g Water 20,000 g of Water is required to dissolve 1.0 g of Diazepam: THEREFORE Diazepam is classified as practically insoluble What Solubility Classification does Diazepam Fall Into?
