Answer:

#100. mL#

Explanation:

You will be using the basic molarity equation, but first, we must convert the grams of #NaCl# to moles:

#1.00g NaCl((1 mol NaCl)/(58.44 g NaCl)) = 0.0171 mol NaCl#

Now, we'll use the molarity equation

#M = (mol solute)/(L soln)#

and solve for volume (#L#):

#L soln = (mol solute)/(M)#

and plug in known variables to find the volume

#L soln = (0.0171 mol)/(0.171(mol)/L) = 0.100 L#

Lastly, we'll convert from liters to milliliters:

#(0.100 L)(1000 mL)/(1 L) = 100. mL#
