Step 1

Given:

Mass of water is 500 g.

Mass of NaCl is 75 g.

Molality of NaCl is 2.5

Step 2

It is known, 1 g = 0.001 kg

Therefore, mass of NaCl in kg is 0.075 kg.

The mathematical expression of molality is,

Step 3

Substitute the given value of molality and weight... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseNumber of moles of solute Molality = Weight of solvent in kg Number of moles of NaCl 2.5 0.075 kg Number of moles of NaCl = 0.1875 fullscreen
