Question about dissolving Ammonia
« on: January 22, 2020, 02:53:26 AM »
This is a question from my countrys chemistry olympiad which I can't figure out. I have the correct answer but there are no explanations on how to get them. The question goes like this:

"A flask, which is filled up with ammonia, is filled with water so that all the ammonia dissolves. What is the mass concentration (%) of the solution? What is the molar concentration of the solution?"

The correct answer is 0.076 for the mass concentration and 0.045 for the molar concentration. If there was a solubility curve or some data to work with, this would be easy but there is none. I am confused. How is it possible to know this?

all the ammonia dissolves

Do you need solubility if you are told everything dissolved?

Assume that you have a 1L bottle filled with ammonia under STP. Then pour 1 L of water into it. The solubility of ammonia in water is very high (700 L of NH3 / 1L water). Calculating the percentage and molar concentration is already very easy (the solution will be so diluted that you do not have to worry about the density of the solution).
