Step 1

Given information:

Volume of NH4Cl solution (V1) =250.0 mL

Volume of NH3 solution (V2) =100.0 mL

Concentration of NH4Cl solution (M1) = 0.15 M

Concentration of NH3 solution (M2) = 0.20 M

Step 2

First the concentration of new solution formed  is calculated as follows: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseM, V (Salt) M,V (NH,C) M2V3 (NH,CI) М, V (Salt) 0.15 Mx250 mL (250+100) mL 0.15 Mx250 mL 300 mL = 0.125 M fullscreen
