# What would be the final volume of a 10.4% (m/v) solution made from 5.00 g of solute?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

The idea here is that a solution's **mass by volume percent concentration**,

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 **as a conversion factor**.

#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 *enough water* to get the total volume of the solution to
