Can someone help me with this question:
The student made 250 cm3 of a solution of citric acid of concentration 0.0500 mol/dm3
Calculate the mass of citric acid (C6H8O7) required.
Relative atomic masses (Ar): H = 1 C = 12 O = 16

I know you cant tell me the exact answer im just confused because its calculating mass instead of concentration. do i need to calculate moles?

So you start with moles = concentration x volume.

Then you have moles and Mr, so mass = Mr x Moles
(Mr Moles is how I remember that equation xD)

n(C6H8O7) = 0.0500 mol/dm3 * 250/1000 dm3
Then multiply this value by the molecular mass (6*12 + 8*1 + 16*7)
