Concentration 27551

We need a 4% solution of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) for the disinfection solution. We only have a 40% solution available. How much water do we need to add to 100ml of the original solution to obtain the desired concentration?

Correct answer:

x =  900 ml

Step-by-step explanation:

0.40 · 100 = 0.04(x+100)

0.40 · 100 = 0.04·(x+100)

0.04x = 36

x = 36/0.04 = 900

x = 900
