0.0900 mol/L

Explanation:

A chemist makes 330. mL of nickel(II) chloride working solution by adding distilled water to 220. mL of a 0.135 mol/L stock solution of nickel(II) chloride in water. Calculate the concentration of the chemist’s working solution. Round your answer to significant digits.

Step 1: Given data

• Initial concentration (C₁): 0.135 mol/L
• Initial volume (V₁): 220. mL
• Final concentration (C₂): ?
• Final volume (V₂): 330. mL

Step 2: Calculate the concentration of the final solution

We prepare a dilute solution from a concentrated one. We can calculate the concentration of the working solution using the dilution rule.

C₁ × V₁ = C₂ × V₂

C₂ = C₁ × V₁/V₂

C₂ = 0.135 mol/L × 220. mL/330. mL = 0.0900 mol/L
