Calculating Mass
« on: September 24, 2006, 10:33:11 PM »
Hello can someone help me calculate the mass of Cu(NO3)23H2O needed to prepare 50.0mL of a .50 M Cu(II) solution?

I would appreciate it if you can help me through this problem by telling me what I should do rather than give me the answer.

Thanks

Do you know how to figure out what the molar mass of Cu(NO3)2*3H2O is?

Yeah I got the molar mass to be 241.599 grams, but I don't know how to set it up from there.

i'm not sure if i'm right :-\ . but i think first of all , you would have to write a balanced chemical equation .from that you can figure it out. i think so. :P

How would you go from here in the case of Cu(NO3)2?

The molar mass would be 241.599 g/mol
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

When Copper (II) Nitrate dissolves, how many moles of Cu2+ are released per mole of Cu(NO3)2?
