Step 1

As given that unknown solution produced a current of 4.78 micro A.

Since there is a relationship between current and concentration is expressed by equation (1) where I is limiting current and C is the concentration of solution and k is limiting current constant

Substitutes 4.78 micro A for I, in equation 1

Since 1 micro A= 1 × 10-6 A. So

Step 2

Also given that concentration of the standard solution is 0.0627 M  and when 35 ml of unknown solution is added to 0.300 ml of the standard solution than current reaches 6.54 × 10-6 A.

Using equation (3) we find the new concentration of the solution in which standard and the unknown solution are mixed.
