You are asked to make 1 Liter of 5M Sodium Chloride (NaCl). How many grams of NaCl are needed?

Hi,

My name is Teesta and I need your help with this Chemistry problem that I listed above.

Can you please help me?

Thanks,

Teesta

5M =  5moles per litre. Each mole NaCl has a mass of 23+35.5 = 58.5g (using simple atomic masses). So 5 moles would weigh 5 x 58.5g
