I am in a basic chemistry course in college. Can someone please verify that I have done this problem correctly.
Here is the problem:
How many grams of H2SO4 are needed to prepare 500 mL of a .25 N solution?
Here is my attempt to solve:
First, I found the formula weight of the H2SO4. Then I decided to find the M value from the Normality value. I took the .25 Normality number and divided it by 2 (the number of equivalents) which gave me an answer of .125 M. From there I multiplied .125 M by .5 L and got an answer of .0625 moles H2SO4. I converted moles to grams and came up with the answer of 6.125 grams H2SO4 . I have a big test in the morning and would like to know that I was able to solve this correctly in case my professor puts a similar problem on the test. Your input would be appreciated.
