8.3 Concentration of Solution

Concentration of Solutions can be expressed in different ways as follows :

i)Weight percentage of solute is the weight of solute
(´ 100), divided by the total weight of the solution.

i.e. 10% w/w of NaCl means 10 gms of NaCl is present in a 100 g of solution.

ii) The molarity, M, of a solution is the number of moles of solute per kg of solvent.

20 M of sodium chloride solution means 20 moles (20 ´ 55.5 gms) of sodium chloride dissolved in a solvent to get one liter of solution.

iii) The molality, m, of a solution is the number of moles of solute per kg of solution.

12 m of sodium chloride solution means 12 moles (12 ´ 55.5 gms) of sodium chloride dissolved in a solvent to get 1 kg of solution.


iv) The normality, N, of a solution is the number of gram equivalent weight of solute per liter of solution.

5 N of sulphuric acid solution means ( 5 ´ 49 gms ) ( \ eq. wt = mol.wt / no.of equivalents = 98/2 = 49 ) of sulphuric acid dissolved in solvent to get one liter of solution.

v) The mole fraction, X, is the ratio of the number of moles of solute ( or solvent ) to the total number of moles of all components in a solution.
