# onsider a sugar solution (solution A) with concentration x. You pour one-third of this solution into a beaker, and add an uivalent volume of water (solution B). What is the ratio of sugar in solutions A and B? Compare the volumes of solutions A and B. m>c. What is the ratio of the concentrations of sugar in solutions A and 13?

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The ratio of sugar in solutions A and B is to be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

The molarity of a solution is defined as the number of moles of a solute dissolved in 1L of the solution. The formula for molarity is given as,

M=nV

Where,

• n represents the number of moles of the solute.
• V represents the volume of the solution.
Explanation

The concentration of solution A is x.

Solution B is formed by mixing one-third of solution A and equivalent amount of water. The amount of sugar present in solution B will be one third of the amount o

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

The volume of solution A and B is to be compared.
