number of moles in br2 solution

(1/3) > >>

yitzik:
hello!
how can i calculate the number of moles of br2 in a solution of 10% (by mass) of br2 in  dichloromethane?
there is no available data about the density of such a solution, so how can i deduce it's molarity?
what is the right way to solve it?

thanks!

Orcio_Dojek:
1. Find the density of 10 % (by weight) solution of Br2 in CH2Cl2.
2. Calculate mass of 1000 ml of this solution.
3. Divide quantity (number of moles) of Br2 per volume of the solution (1 liter).

You can't.

i'm asked to find the number of moles in 30 ml of such a solution, so there must be a way to do this..
maybe there is a way to calculate the average density of the two substances? or weighted mean of the densities or something like that?

if you could please help me
thanks!

Orcio_Dojek:
True, as density of the solution grows linearly with the growth of mass concentration (fits the y = a + bx function).
