Kaochlor, a 10%(m/v) KCL solution, is an oral electrolyte supplement administered for potassium deficiency. How many grams are in 172mL of solution.


Expert Answer

Step 1

The concentration of the KCl solution is given to be 10%(w/v)

Here the term 10%(w/v) clearly indicates that about 10g of KCl which is dissolved in 100mL of solution is 10g.

This means that 100mL of solution will contain 10g of Potassium Chloride.

Step 2

We need to find the amount or mass of Potassium Chloride which has been dissolved in 172 m...
