Step 1

The molarity of a solution is defined as the number of moles of solute present in one-liter solution, as stated in equation (1); M is the molarity of solution, n is the number of moles, and V is the volume of solution in liters.

Step 2

The conversion factor for mL and L units is,

1 mL = 10-3 L

Hence, the volume 200 mL is equal to 0.200 L and the volume 730 mL is equal to 0.730 L.

The number of moles of sodium carbonate in the primary solution is calculated using equation (1),

Step 3

The concentration of the final sodium carbonate s...
