If you dilute 25.0 mL of 1.50 M hydrochloric acid to 500. mL, what is the molar concentration of the dilute acid?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

If 25.0mL of 1.50M hydrochloric acid is diluted to 500mL then the molar concentration of diluted acid should be determined.

Concept introduction:

• Concentration of solutions can be expressed in various terms; molarity is one such concentration expressing term.
• Molarity (M) of a solution is the number of gram moles of a solute present in one liter of the solution.

Molarity=MassperlitreMolecular mass

• A solution containing one gram mole or 0.1 gram of solute per litre of solution is called molar solution.
• Concentrationofsubstance=Amountof substancevolumeofthesubstance
• Amountof substance=Concentrationofsubstance×volumeofthesubstance
Explanation

Amount of HCl in the 25.0mL solution can be calculated as follows,

AmountofHCl = CHCl×VHCl = 1.50molHClL×25.0×10-3L = 0
