What would be the final volume of a 10.4% (m/v) solution made from 5.00 g of solute?
In your case, the solution is said to have a mass by volume percent concentration of
Now, you know that your target solution must contain
#5.00 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g solute"))) * "100 mL solution"/(10.4color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g solute")))) = color(darkgreen)(ul(color(black)("48.1 mL solution")))#
The answer is rounded to three sig figs, the number of sig figs you have for your values.
So, in order to make this
