Molarity question, related to below question
« on: June 25, 2011, 09:44:57 PM »
Trying to figure out the molarity of Isobutyraldehyde solution

Received at a 99% solution, molecular weight 72.11, and density at 0.790g/mL (790g/L). Am I right to calculate the molarity to be 10.96M?

Thanks for helping!

If it is 99% w/w, then the molarity is 10.846 M, I think.

No - you didn't take purity into account.

Thanks so much!  :)

I'm actually now reasoning that, being 99% pure, the difference in molarity either way is negligible for how I'm using it in experiments.

Glad to have found this forum!
