Practice Problem 1 Solution:If only 0.25 molar NaOH and water are available, how much NaOH needs to be added to make 10 liters of 0.2 molar solution of NaOH?One way to do the problem: You're going to take a certain number of moles contained in a volume and put these moles in a total volume such that the final concentration is 0.2 molar. First we can determine how many moles are needed to make 10 liters of solution that are 0.2 molar: 10 liters * 0.2 moles/liter = 2 moles Now that we know we need 2 moles of NaOH, we can see how many liters of 0.25 molar solution are need to have 2 moles of NaOH: 2 moles * 1 liter/0.25 moles = 8 liters Another way to solve this problem is to use the equation:
.20 = .25*Volume_{original}/10 Volume_{original}=8 L
