# To prepare a solution of aluminum sulfate (Al2 (SO4) 3), 2.4 g of salt and 60 ml of water were taken

To prepare a solution of aluminum sulfate (Al2 (SO4) 3), 2.4 g of salt and 60 ml of water were taken (p = 1 g / cm3). Determine the mass fraction as a percentage of the dissolved. substances in the resulting solution.

The solution consists of two components. Dissolved substance (aluminum sulfate) and solvent (water).

The density of water is 1 gram / cm3. Therefore, you need to measure out 60 ml. water so that the weight in the solution is 60 grams.

The weight of the solution is 2.4 + 60 = 62.4 grams.

Let’s calculate the mass fraction of salt.

To do this, divide the mass of salt by the mass of the solution.

С substance = 2.4 / 62.4 = 0.038 = 3.8%;

In a similar way, we calculate the mass fraction of the solvent.

From water = 60 / 62.4 = 0.962 = 96.2%;

Checking: C substance + C solvent = 3.8 + 96.2 = 100%; One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society. A person today needs to study almost all his life, mastering everything new and new, acquiring the necessary professional qualities.
