# What is the mass of the solution with a mass fraction of a substance of 0.08; containing 5.6 g of KOH?

| To find the mass of a solution, it is necessary to divide the mass of the solute by its mass fraction.

M solution = M alkali / C alkali = 5.6 / 0.08 = 70 grams;

The mass of water will be equal to the product of the mass of the solution by the mass fraction of water.

M water = M solution x C water = 70 x 0.92 = 64.4 grams;

Examination:

M solution = M water + M alkali = 5.6 + 64.4 = 70 grams;
