##### How do I calculate the following
« on: February 20, 2008, 04:03:14 PM »
You have 200gallons of a solution containing 1ppm of NaOH and 200ppm of NaHSO3. This solution is then poured into 1 ton of H2O. Assuming steady state, what is the concentration of NaOH and NaHSO3 expected to be in the 1 ton solution?

Thank you

Wow.  Hope you're up on your scientific notation skills, because those are going to be some seriously small numbers.  What's the class, Homeopathy 101?

I wonder what they mean by "NaOH and NaHSO3" concentration... What about dissociation? Neutralization?

I believe the question is asking how much sodium hydroxide and how much sodium bisulfite is expected to be found in the 1 ton solution of water. It's a very small quantity but how is it calculated?

Well, for starters, you'll want to show a balanced chemical equation.
