How would you describe the preparation of 900 mL of 3.00 M #HNO_3# from the commercial reagent that is 70.5% #HNO_3# (w/w) and has a specific gravity of 1.42.?
Well first, we determine the molar concentration of the mother acid.
...........and finally we get a required volume of
And if we specify a
So that is our mother acid. And as you know WE ALWAYS ADD ACID TO WATER AND NEVER THE REVERSE. Because if you spit in acid it will spit back.............
And thus, we want a molar quantity of
And so we divide this molar quantity by the concentration of the conc. nitric..........
And so we dilute (IN THIS ORDER),
