You're supposed to use the periodic table for this quiz i think (:

A Roman City - 50 plus oxygen(16), neodymium(144), indium(115), iodine(127), uranium(238) added to a 1 moldm-3 solution.

I put the mass number (atomic mass) of each element in brackets to save you looking them up (: its the bit about the moldm-3 solution that is bugging me. i haven't really learnt about that before :/

thanks everyone, its probably dead easy but i'm just not getting it! :/

N.B - the atomic number and mass number are different things.

no idea about this question though, sorry

I'm not even sure about what the question is asking :confused:

But mol dm^-3 is a unit of concentration. If it is 1 mol dm^-3, then there is 1 mole for every dm. There are 1000cm^-3 in 1dm^-3.

If you already knew that and are asking a different question, then that must've sounded very patronising :p:

Please type the question EXACTLY as it is. A 1M solution of WHAT, btw? :confused: And what is '50 plus'? g, g/mol, mol....

Type the question exactly as you see it, perhaps then I could make sense of it :confused:

Yep, just that and that we're supposed to use the periodic table to help us.

The exact question is:

A Roman City - 50 plus oxygen, neodymium, indium, iodine, uranium added to a 1 moldm-3 solution.

With most of the other questions, you use the elements symbol or mass number to help you figure out the answer, but this one baffles me! I'm not sure what the '1 moldm-3 solution' thing means at all - the quiz is for the whole school so I guess we haven't covered it yet.

This sounds like some obscure crossword clue...
Could the 1 mol dm-3 equal M? Could 50 be Sn (which has atomic number 50)? Atomic mass 50 lies between Ti and V...
Sn, O, Nd, In, I, U, M.

So the answer would be "S n M" :p:

Apparently that's what the 50 referred to.

L; O, Nd, In, I, U; M

could mol/dm3 be m/l (as in litre), so that'd be where the extra m and l come from
L comes from the Roman numeral for 50. M comes from mol dm-3.

don't worry about the atomic masses.

Think, about the chemical symbols element, and the roman numeral for 50?

got it?
