A copper sulphate solution contains 1.595% of CuSO4 by weight.its density is 1.2g/ml,what will be its molarity?

Weight of solute = 1.595 gm = 0.01 mole  [Mol. Wt of CuSO4 =159.5]

  Weight of Solution = 100 gm

  Density = Mass / Volume

  Convert Wt. of solution from gram to ml = 100/ 1.2

   = 83.33ml = 0.0833 L

  Molarity =   = 0.01/0.0833

  Putting the parameter in above formula, the molarity of solution is 0.12M.
