Mass from Volume and Concentration: Finding the mass concentration is not difficult anymore by utilising this tool. Here you can check the parameters that are dependent on the mass, mass from concentration and volume formula, and a detailed explanation to solve these problems.

Mass Concentration Formula

The formula to calculate mass from volume and concentration of a solution is given here.

Concentration of a solution (g/L) = Mass of the solute (g)/ Volume of the solution (L)

Mass (g) = Concentration (g/L) x Volume (L) x Formula weight


Mass from Volume and Concentration Calculation

The detailed step by step procedure to calculate mass of the solute with concentration and volume values are here:

  • Identify the volume of the solution.
  • Get the solution concentration and formula weight.
  • Multiply the concentration with the volume.
  • Again multiply the product with formula weight to check the mass of the solute.

Example:

Am amount of 100 ml lithium chloride solution having concentration 3.45 g/ml is dissolbved in water. What is the mass of the lithium chloride?

Solution:

Volume of lithium chloride solution = 100 ml

Concentration = 3.45 g/ml

LiCl + H2O → LiOH + HCl

Formula weight = 1

Mass (g) = Concentration (g/L) x Volume (L) x Formula weight

= 3.45 x 100 x 1

= 690

Therefore, 690 g of lithium chloride is dissolved in water.


FAQ's on Mass from Volume and Concentration

1. How to find mass when volume and concentration are given?

The division of mass of the solute by the total volume of the solution is called the concentration. So, mass is the product of the volume & concentration of the solution. To find mass, multiply volume, concentration and formula weight parameters.


2. What is the formula for calculating mass concentration?

The formula to calculate the mass of the solute is mass = concentration * volume.


3. Is concentration equal to mass over volume?

For pure chemicals, mass divided by volume si equal to concentration.


4. What happens to concentration when volume increases?

The concentration is the ratio of mass to volume i.e concentration is inversely proportional to volume. So, when solution volume increases, then its concentration decreases.
