    gdm-3 = 1.05/(0.5)
    For moldm-3:
    n=m/mr to find number of moles. Then use c=n/v

    This is correct but a quick way to do the last part is to recognise that the difference between the two is that it goes from g to mol, and using the equation n=m/Mr you could just divide the answer got for g dm-3 by the Mr of NaOH

    Using your method I would get 0.0525 g dm-3 (2.1/40=0.0525) however on the markscheme it says the answer is 84

    You should get 2.1 g dm-3 (doing 1.05 g / 0.5 dm3)
    Then divide 2.1 g dm-3 by the Mr of NaOH which is 40 which should give you 0.0525 mol dm-3 as you correctly calculated.
    I do not see where the 84 could have come from. Perhaps could you post the mark scheme so that I could have a look?

    I

    I THInk the mark scheme is wrong. These questions are from chemsheet & I haven noticed a few other times in which the marksheme is incorrect
