Copper sulphate

How much g of water do we have to add to 240 g of an 84% CuSO4 solution to produce a 60% solution? (Express the mass of crystalline CuSO4 in the original solution and in the resulting solution and compare them. )

Result

w =  96 g
m1 =  201.6 g
m2 =  201.6 g

Solution:


0.84*240 = 0.60 *(240+w)

0.6w = 57.6

w = 96

Calculated by our simple equation calculator.
m1=0.84 240=201.6=10085=201.6 gm_{1}=0.84 \cdot \ 240=201.6=\dfrac{ 1008 }{ 5 }=201.6 \ \text{g}
m2=0.60 (240+w)=0.60 (240+96)=10085=201.6 g  m1=m2m_{2}=0.60 \cdot \ (240+w)=0.60 \cdot \ (240+96)=\dfrac{ 1008 }{ 5 }=201.6 \ \text{g} \ \\ \ \\ m_{1}=m_{2}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
