214.2 g of sugar syrup contains 34.2 g of sugar.
(i) molarity of the solution
(ii) mole fraction of sugar in the syrup.
Analyzing the given data:
Given Mass of sugar
Molar Mass of sugar
No. of moles of sugar =
Sugar syrup contains sugar in water.
Molar Mass of Water
No. of moles of water =
Part (i): Molarity of solution
Molarity(M): The number of moles of a solute dissolved in 1 L (1000 ml) of the solution is known as the molarity of the solution.
Thus, the molarity of sugar is 0.555 M
Part (ii): Mole fraction of sugar
Total number of moles of solution = mole of solute + mole of solvent
Thus, mole fraction of sugar in the syrup is 0.0099.
