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
