    The answer should be 3.84 the same as the concentration of the aqueous ammonia solution since the number of moles are the same and so is the volume.

    The answer is 0.16 mol dm-3?!

    You know the volume and concentration of the initial ammonia solution so you can work out the mumber of moles there.

    You then work out the number of moles in the aqueous layer after shaking.

    Thus the number of moles in the other layer = mol(initially) - moles(aqueous)

    So if you know the volume (which you do) you can work out the concentration...

    Moles initial= 75/1000 x 4= 0.3
    Moles (aqueous)= 0.096

    0.3-0.096 = 0.204 mol
    mole/vol = conc
    0.204/3.84 = 0.053 moldm-3
    but in the markscheme it says 0.16 moldm-3

    Moles initial= 75/1000 x 4= 0.3


    Moles (aqueous)= 0.096
    This is moles in 25ml BUT there is 75 ml altogether

    Hence moles = 3 x 0.096 = 0.288 mol

    0.3-0.096 = 0.204 mol
    So this should be 0.3 - 0.288 = 0.012 mol

    mole/vol = conc
    0.204/3.84 = 0.053 moldm-3
    but in the markscheme it says 0.16 moldm-3
    and the concentration = 0.012/0.075 = 0.16 mol dm-3
