Expert Answer

Step 1

Solution stoichiometry is mainly based on the calculation of moles and volumes. These two values are used to calculate the molarity of solution. The relation between moles, and mass is as given below;

Step 2

Given:

Density = 1.035 g/mL

Mass of sea water = 1 kg = 1000 g

Calculate volume of sea water:

Step 3

Mass of Chloride ions = 567 mg = 567 x 10-3 g

Molar Mass of Chloride ions = 35.5 g/mol

Calculate molarity:
