What is the Concentration of a Solution?

 

It is the amount of solute present in a solution

 

Example: -

Suppose 100 grams of salt is mixed in 400 grams of water

It forms 500 grams of solution

Concentration of Solution = Mass of Solute / Mass of Solution x 100 

                                             = (100 / 500) x 100 

                                              = 20%

Different Methods  to Calculate Concentration: -

  • Mass by Mass %

Concentration of Solution = (Mass of Solute / Mass of Solution) x 100

  • Mass by Volume %

Concentration of Solution = (Mass of Solute / Volume  of Solution) x 100

  • Volume by Volume %

Concentration of Solution = (Volume  of Solute / Volume  of Solution) x 100
