The volume of the solution is 0.046 L or 46 mL

Explanation:

Step 1: Data given

Concentration of solution = 1.45 M

Mass of HCl = 2.43 grams

Molar mass of HCl = 36.46 g/mol

Step 2: Calculate moles of HCl

Moles HCl = mass HCl / molar mass HCl

Moles HCl = 2.43 grams / 36.46 g/mol

Moles HCl = 0.0667 moles

Step 3: Calculate volume of solution

Volume = moles HCl / concentration HCl

Volume = 0.0667 moles / 1.45 M

Volume = 0.046 L = 46 mL

The volume of the solution is 0.046 L or 46 mL

0.046L or 46mL

Explanation:

The following data were obtained from the question:

Molarity = 1.45 M

Mass is HCl = 2.43 g

Volume = ... ?

To obtain the volume of the solution, first, we need to calculate the number of mole of HCl in the solution. This can obtain as follow:

Mass of HCl = 2.43 g

Molar mass of HCl = 1 + 35.5 = 36.5g/mol

Number of mole of HCl = ... ?

Number of mole = Mass/Molar Mass

Number of mole of HCl = 2.43/36.5

Number of mole of HCl = 0.067 mole

Now, we can obtain the volume of the solution as follow:

Mole of HCl = 0.067 mole

Molarity = 1.45 M

Volume = ... ?

Molarity = mole / Volume

Volume = mole / Molarity

Volume = 0.067/1.45

Volume = 0.046L

Therefore, the volume of the solution is 0.046L or 46 mL
