What is the molar concentration of sulfuric acid given the following data?

The acid is supplied as a #98%# #"(w/w)"# solution; #rho_"acid"=1.84*g*cm^-3#. Can you provide the concentration with respect to #"sulfuric acid"#?

Answer:

Approx. #18*mol*L^-1...........#

Explanation:

We want the quotient, #"Moles of sulfuric acid"/"Volume of solution"# with respect to the sulfuric acid...........

And so, if we have a #1*cm^3# volume of the acid..........

#"Concentration"=((1.84*gxx98%)/(98.08*g*mol^-1))/(1*cm^3xx10^-3*L*cm^-3)=18.48*mol*L^-1#.
