0.27 L

#### Explanation:

We are looking for volume and are given a mass and a molarity.

Note:

Rearranging this equation to solve for **volume**:

We have **M**, but we need

To get the moles of KCl:

Finally, plug back into the equation for

**Note:** This is the total *solution* volume, not the volume of *solvent*. Total volume of **solute + solvent** is the **solution** volume.
