A 0.9% solution of NaCl is considered isotonic to mammalian cells. What molar concentrations is this? ___________ M


Expert Answer

Step 1

The given solution is 0.9 % solution of NaCl which means 0.9 g of NaCl is present in 100 mL water.


The number of moles of NaCl in 100 mL water is calculated by the expression given in equation (1) in which n is the number of moles, m is the given mass and M is the molar mass. The value of number of moles is calculated in the equation (2).

. () M 0.9 g 58.44 g/mol (2) 0.0154 mol |

Step 2

The volume of water is 100 mL which is equal to 0.100 L.


The molarity of a solution is calculated by the expression given in equation (3) in which M is the molarity of...
