A solution contains 60g of sugar in 480g of water. Calculate the concentration of solution in terms of mass by mass percentage of the solution.

Dear Student,

Mass of sugar (solute) = 60g

Mass of Water (solvent) = 480g

Total mass of the solution = 60g + 480g = 520g

Mass %=Mass of soluteMass of solution×100               =60520×100                =11.5%

concentration=mass of solute/mass of solution
=60/480+60*100
=100/9
=11.1%
