# If we have 5.5% "m/m" solution with respect to a solution....what is the mass of solute in a 2000*g mass of solution...?

Is it not $110 \cdot g$.....

#### Explanation:

We are given "mass of solute"/"mass of solution"xx100%=5.5%

And thus $\text{mass of solute"=0.055xx"mass of solution}$

$= 0.055 \times 2000 \cdot g = 110 \cdot g$

Now the volume of this solution would be as near as dammit to $1890 \cdot m L$ (why?). Would you tell us the concentration of potassium chloride in $m o l \cdot {L}^{-} 1$?
