A Solution Of Sugar In Water Is 5% Of Mass.How Much Sugar Is Present In 250 Grams Of Solution?

Given m/v % of sugar = 5%
Total volume of solution = 250 mL
Mass by volume percentage [m/v%] = mass of solute ( in g)total volume of solution ( in mL)× 100
Substituting all the values in equation:

5 = Mass of sugar (in g)250 mL×100
Mass of sugar in solution = 5×250100                                            = 12.5 g
Thus 12.5 g sugar is present in 250 mL of 5% solution.
