Solution Summary

The percentage concentration of two solutions in regards to diffusion are given. The solution answers the question step-by-step using formulas and explanation.

Solution Preview

The percentage concentration can be calculated using the following formula:

percentage concentration = (mass of solute / mass of solution)*100

The mass of solution is the combined mass of the solute and the solvent (water). You have been given the amount of water as a volume. The corresponding mass can be easily calculated using the density of water (1 g/mL).

So for the bag, you ...
