### LAB / What volume of water must be added to 250ml of 7M HCl to produce 5M HCl? (Hint: M1V1 = M2V2)

• A.

100 ml

• B.

1000 ml

• C.

350 ml

• D.

250 ml

A. 100 ml
Explanation
To calculate the volume of water that must be added, we can use the formula M1V1 = M2V2. The initial concentration of the HCl solution is 7M and the final concentration we want is 5M. The initial volume is given as 250ml. By rearranging the formula, we can solve for V2, which represents the volume of water to be added. Plugging in the values, we get (7M)(250ml) = (5M)(250ml + V2). Solving for V2 gives us V2 = 100ml. Therefore, 100 ml of water must be added to the 250ml of 7M HCl to produce a 5M HCl solution.

### LAB / What volume of water must be added to 250ml of 7M HCl to produce 5M HCl? (Hint: M1V1 = M2V2)

• A.

100 ml

• B.

1000 ml

• C.

350 ml

• D.

250 ml

A. 100 ml
Explanation
To calculate the volume of water that must be added, we can use the formula M1V1 = M2V2. In this case, M1 is 7M, V1 is 250ml, M2 is 5M, and V2 is the volume of water we need to find. Plugging in these values, we get 7(250) = 5(V2). Solving for V2, we find that V2 is equal to 350 ml. Therefore, 350 ml of water must be added to 250 ml of 7M HCl to produce 5M HCl.

### LAB / What volume of water must be added to 250ml of 7M HCl to produce 5M HCl? (Hint: M1V1 = M2V2)

• A.

100 ml

• B.

1000 ml

• C.

350 ml

• D.

250 ml

A. 100 ml
Explanation
To find the volume of water that must be added, we can use the formula M1V1 = M2V2.
Given:
M1 = 7M (initial concentration of HCl)
V1 = 250ml (initial volume of HCl)
M2 = 5M (final concentration of HCl)
V2 = ? (final volume of HCl)

Rearranging the formula, we have:
V2 = (M1V1) / M2
V2 = (7M * 250ml) / 5M
V2 = 1750ml / 5
V2 = 350ml

Therefore, 350ml of HCl is needed to produce 5M HCl. Since we already have 250ml of HCl, we need to add 100ml of water to reach the desired concentration.

### What can a polar molecule dissolve?

• A.

Any solute

• B.

A nonpolar solute

• C.

A polar solute

• D.

No solute

C. A polar solute
Explanation
A polar molecule can dissolve a polar solute. Polar molecules have a positive and negative end, which allows them to interact with other polar molecules through electrostatic attractions. When a polar solute is placed in a polar solvent, the solvent molecules surround the solute particles and break them apart, forming a solution. On the other hand, polar molecules cannot dissolve nonpolar solutes because nonpolar solutes lack a charge and cannot form strong attractions with the polar solvent molecules. Therefore, the correct answer is a polar solute.

### All of the following speed up the dissolving process except _______.

• A.

Stirring the solution

• B.

Increasing the size of the solid to be dissolved

• C.

Increasing the temperature of the solvent

• D.

Crushing the solid to be dissolve

B. Increasing the size of the solid to be dissolved
Explanation
Increasing the size of the solid to be dissolved does not speed up the dissolving process. In fact, it has the opposite effect. When the solid is larger, there is less surface area available for the solvent to come into contact with, which slows down the dissolving process. On the other hand, stirring the solution helps to distribute the solvent evenly and increase the contact between the solvent and the solid, thus speeding up the dissolving process. Increasing the temperature of the solvent also speeds up the dissolving process as it increases the kinetic energy of the molecules, leading to more collisions and faster dissolution. Crushing the solid to be dissolved increases its surface area, allowing for more contact with the solvent and therefore speeding up the dissolving process.

### What is the mass of an atom with 8 protons, 7 neutrons, and 8 electrons?

• A.

15 amu

• B.

7 amu

• C.

8 amu

• D.

23 amu

A. 15 amu
Explanation
The mass of an atom is determined by the sum of the masses of its protons, neutrons, and electrons. In this case, the atom has 8 protons, 7 neutrons, and 8 electrons. The mass of a proton is approximately 1 amu, the mass of a neutron is also approximately 1 amu, and the mass of an electron is negligible compared to that of a proton or neutron. Therefore, the mass of the atom can be calculated as 8 amu (protons) + 7 amu (neutrons) = 15 amu.
