concentration is given in wt %:

[(% x d) / MW] x 10 = Molarity Where: % = Weight %;

d = Density (or specific gravity); MW = Molecular Weight (or Formula Weight). The above equation

can then be used to calculate the Molarity of the 70 wt % Nitric Acid:

[(70 x 1.413) / 63.01] x 10 = 15.7 M - See more at:

When purchasing chemicals especially acids and solvents, they come in the form of liquids instead of

solids.

Calculating the Molarity of liquid chemicals when one is given the percentage of purity of the

chemical and its specific gravity is as follows:

Molar concentration or Molarity

= [(% purity in w/w or v/v * specific gravity or also known as density)/ Molecular or Formula Weight

of the chemical] * 10

=[(%*d)/Mw]*10

=[(%*g/mL)/g/mol]*10

= ___ M

e.g.

Chemical = 2-cyclohexen-1-one

Formula weight = 96.13 g/mol

Specific gravity = 0.993 g/mL

Purity = 97%

Molar concentration = 97*0.993/96.13*10 = 10.02 M

-------------------------------------------------------------10.02 M is approx. 10 M which is the stock concentration of this liquid substrate.

-------------------------------------------------------------In order to obtain 1 M from this 97% pure liquid substrate in 1 mL

I will need to take = 1 M * 0.001 L / 10 = 0.0001 L = 0.1 mL

and add it to 0.9 mL buffer or water or solvent.

This is calculated by using another equation:

M1V1 = M2V2

or

C1V1 = C2V2

also called the dilution equation

where M1 is the working concentration, V1 is the working volume while M2 is the stock concentration

and V2 is the stock volume needed to make up the (M1) working concentration in the (V1) working

volume.

A mole is an amount of a substance, also it is a specific number of molecules, formula units, ions, etc.

of a substance. A practical definition for a mole is that one mole of a substance is the molecular mass

(weight) or formula weight of the substance expressed in grams. The formal definition for mole is that

it is the amount of a substance that contains exactly the number of molecules or formula units as the

number of atoms in 12 g of carbon-12 (12C). This number is 6.02 x 1023 and is called Avogadro's

number. One mole of a molecular compound therefore contains 6.02 x 1023 molecules or Avogadro's

number of molecules. The number of moles in a particular mass of a substance is:

____________________________mass of a substance_____________________ = moles

molecular mass (weight) or formula weight of a substance expressed in grams (g/mole)

In practice, the term mole is also commonly used with other species such as ions, elements, electrons,

and so forth. For example, one gram-atom of sodium is often called a mole of sodium and contains

6.02 x 1023 atoms. The species under discussion must be specifically stated. For example, one gramatom of nitrogen contains one mole of nitrogen atoms (N) but 1/2 mole of N2 molecules. Therefore it

must be stated whether the nitrogen atom or the N2 molecule is the species under discussion.

CONCENTRATIONS BASED ON THE VOLUME OF SOLVENT

1. Molarity (M) is the number of moles of solute dissolved in one liter of solution. Molarity is also

called molar concentration. The molarity of a solution can be calculated when the number of grams of

the substance in the solution, the volume of the solution, and the molecular weight or formula weight

of the substance are known. Conversely, the number of grams of the substance needed to prepare a

solution of a particular molarity can be calculated if the final volume of the solution is defined and the

molecular weight or formula weight of the substance is known. Dilute solutions are named by using

the appropriate prefix. For example:

10-3M = 1mM (millimolarity) = 1 mmole L-1 = 1mole mL-1

10-6M = 1M = 1 mole L-1 = 1 nmole mL-1

The equation defining molarity is:

molarity (M) = moles of solute / liters of solution

or rearranged

molarity (M) x liters of solution = moles of solute

The following are true for a solution that is diluted. Before dilution

molarity (M1) x liters (V1) = moles (m1)

M1,V1 = molarity, volume before dilution

After dilution (number of moles does not change)

M2 x V2 = m1

M2,V2 = molarity, volume after dilution

therefore

M1 x V1 = M2 x V2

Any units can be used for volume and molarity but V1 and V2 must be in the same units as must

M1 and M2.

2. Normality (N) is the number of equivalents of a solute dissolved in one liter of solution. For an acid

or base, an equivalent is the molecular weight or formula weight of the acid or base expressed in

grams divided by the number of moles of hydronium (H3O+) or hydroxyl ions produced by this amount

of acid or base. For a compound that undergoes oxidation or reduction, an equivalent is the molecular

weight or formula weight of the reductant or oxidant expressed in grams divided by the number of

faradays of electrons released or accepted by this amount of reductant or oxidant. A faraday is a mole

of electrons, i.e. 6.02 x 1023 electrons. Equivalents can be calculated from moles.

equivalents = moles / n

n = number of hydronium or hydroxyl ions produced from one molecule (ion) of an acid or base

or

n = number of electrons released or accepted from one molecule (ion) of an reductant or oxidant.

The term equivalent weight is used and related to molecular weight and formula weight by

equivalent weight = molecular weight / n = formula weight / n

An equivalent is also defined as the equivalent weight expressed in grams. The number of equivalents

in a certain mass of a substance is calculated from:

equivalents = mass (grams) of a substance / equivalent weight (g/eqiv.)

Normality and molarity are related by the formula, N = nM, where n has the meanings stated above.

3. Percent based on volume.

percent, weight/volume (%, w/v) -- the weight in grams of a solute dissolved in 100 mL of solution

percent, volume/volume (%, v/v) -- the volume in mL of a solute dissolved in 100 mL of solution

4. Osmolarity is the number of moles of particles in one liter of solution. A 1 M NaCl solution is 2

Osmolar. A 1 M D-glucose solution is 1 Osmolar. A 1 M Na3PO4 solution containing NaCl at 1 M

concentration is 6 Osmolar.

5. Ionic strength is a measure of the intensity of the charge (electric field) in solution due to the ions

present.

Mi - the molarity of the ith ion

zi - the net electrical charge on the ith ion

The equation was established empirically by Lewis and Randell (1921). Ionic strength is related to and

sometimes equal to the molar concentration of charge in solution. The equation deemphasizes the

lower charged species and emphasizes the higher charged ones which takes into account what was

observed experimentally during the development of the formula. The theoretical explanation or

justification for ionic strength is given by the Debye-Hckel theory.

Problem 1: Calculate the ionic strength and the total molar concentration of charge of:

(a) 0.05 M NaCl, (b) 0.05 M Mg3(PO4)2.

EXPRESSIONS OF CONCENTRATION BASED ON THE WEIGHT OF SOLVENT

1. Percent based on weight

percent, weight/weight (%, w/w) -- the weight in grams of a solute dissolved in 100 g of solution.

The concentration of many solutions is expressed as percent (w/w). Commercial strong acids and

bases are expressed in this way. The volume amount of these solutions needed to prepare a solution of

known molarity can be calculated if the specific gravity is known. For commercial strong acids and

bases, the specific gravity is printed on the label. Specific gravity is the ratio of the weight of a

substance to the weight of an equal volume of water. Since it is a ratio, it does not have units. Another

way of stating this definition is that specific gravity is the ratio of the density of a substance to the

density of water. The density of water is 1 when the units, gm/cm3(mL), are used. Therefore, the

numerical value for specific gravity and density are the same when these units are used. Density (d,

also

) is mass per unit volume.

Problem 2: How many milliliters of HCl [37.0% (w/w); specific gravity, 1.18] are needed to prepare

500 mL of 0.16 M HCl?

percent, volume/weight (%, v/w) is the volume in mL of solute dissolved in 100 g of solution.

2. molality (m) -- the number of moles of a solute dissolved in 1000 g of solvent

3. mole fraction -- the number of moles of a solute in solution divided by the total number of moles of

all the substances comprising the solution.

pH AND pOH

The terms pH and pOH were devised as a means of expressing H3O+ and OH- activity without using

exponents. pH is the negative logarithm of the H3O+ activity. The original meaning of "p" was

"potential", in this case potential of H3O+.

Similarly, pOH is the negative logarithm of the OH- activity.

In dilute solution the activities of H3O+ and OH- are considered to be the same as their concentrations.

Therefore in dilute solutions:

pH = -log[H3O+] and pOH = -log[OH-]

The ion product expression for the ionization of water may be rearranged as follows to yield a useful

equation.

Kw = [H3O+] [OH-]

Substitute 1 x 10-14 for Kw at 25C and take logarithms.

log[H3O+] + log[OH-] = -14

multiply by -1

-log[H3O+] + (- log[OH-]) = 14

therefore

pH + pOH = 14

+

Problem 3 (461): Calculate the H3O ion concentration and the OH- concentration in solutions having

pH values of (a) 2.73, (b) 5.29, (c) 8.65, (d) 11.41, and (e) 0.0.

Problem 4 (461): Lake Michigan water has a pH of 6.2. What is the molar concentration of H3O+ in the

lake?

Problem 5 (461): Lake Lansing water has a pH of 5.8. What is the molar concentration of H3O+ in the

lake. What is the molar concentration of OH- in the lake? How many times more acidic is Lake

Lansing than Lake Michigan?

Problem 6 (461): Lake Lansing for all practical purposes is 0.75 miles in diameter and, on average, 8

feet deep. How many pounds of NaOH would have to be added to the lake to adjust its pH to pH 6.2,

the pH of Lake Michigan?

Problem 7 (461): Vinegar is approximately 4.5% (v/v) aqueous acetic acid [sp. gr. 1.05, purity =

99.6% w/w]. How much NaOH would have to be added to 100 mL of vinegar to completely neutralize

the acid?
