Having Difficulty With Chemistry Conversion Problem. Please Help!!!

Post by confused2021 »

I am having difficulty with the following problem:

If you dissolve 360mg glucose (Formula Weight: 180.16g/mole) in 5mL of water:


1.What is the concentration of glucose in mM and µM?

I got 360 mg x 1mole/180.16 g = .002 moles

.002 moles x .005L = 1 x 10^-5 M x 1 x10^3 mM/1M = 1 x 10^-3 mM glucose

1 x 10^-3 mM x 1x 10^-3micromolar/1mM = 1 x 10^-5 micromolar glucose



2.If you take 5mL of this solution and dilute it to 500mL what is the concentration of the glucose in the resulting solution in µM?

I used c1v1=c2v2

(1 x 10^-5 micromolar)(5mL) = (C2)(500 mL) = 1 x 10 ^-7 microMolar



3.How many nanomoles of glucose are present in 10mL of the diluted solution?

I am having difficulty with number 3. Can anyone tell me if numbers 1 and 2 are right and also how I can solve number 3. Any input will be greatly appreciated!!!!

Your final calculation in 1 is wrong.
M = mol/l
So you have to divide the 0.002 mol by 5 ml = 0,0004 mol/ml = 0,4 mol/l = 400 mM

Everything followed has the error.

Going to any kind of best centre is basically pointless. There are many out their. Many that push homework sheets in large classroom settings that charge a small fortune.
