# Question 129a3

May 19, 2015

Your solution has a volume of 6.0 L.

Molarity is defined as moles of solute per liters of solution. This means that if you have 1 mole of a solute in 1 L of solution you'll get a 1 M solution.

SInce you know both the number of moles of solute present, and the actual molarity of the solution, you can determine its volume by

$C = \frac{n}{V} \implies V = \frac{n}{C}$

In your case, the volume of the solution will be

V = (7.2cancel("moles"))/(1.2cancel("moles")/"L") = color(green)("6.0 L")#
