# A 10.7 m solution of NaOH has a density of 1.33 g/cm3 at 20 °C. Calculate the following: (a) the mole fraction of NaOH (b) the weight percent of NaOH (c) the molarity of the solution

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The mole fraction of NaOH solution has to be determined.

Concept introduction:

Mole fraction: Amount of that component divided by the total amount of all of the components of the mixture ( nA +  nB +  n...).

Mole fraction of A (χA)= nA nA +  nB +  n...

Weight percent: The mass of one component divided by the total mass of the mixture, multiplied by 100%

weight % A = Mass of A Mass of A + Mass of B + Mass of C + ...×100%

The number of moles of any substance can be determined using the equation

Numberofmole=GivenmassofthesubstanceMolarmass

Molality (m): Molality is the number of moles of solute present in one kilogram of solvent.

Molality (m) =Numberofmolesofsolute1kgofsolvent

Molarity (M): Molarity is number of moles of the solute present in the one liter of the solution.

Molarity (M) =Numberofmolesofsolute1literofsolution

Density is calculated by the equation,

Density=massvolume

Explanation

Given,

â€‚Â Molar mass of water is 18.02Â g/mol

â€‚Â Molality of the solution is 10.7â€‰m

The number of moles of any substance can be determined using the equation

â€‚Â Numberâ€‰ofâ€‰moleâ€‰=Givenâ€‰massâ€‰ofâ€‰theâ€‰substanceMolarâ€‰massâ€‰

Number of moles of water is,

â€‚Â nwaterâ€‰=â€‰1000â€‰g18.02Â g/mol=â€‰55
