# 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

$\mathrm{Mass}\%=\frac{\mathrm{Mass}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{solute}}{\mathrm{Mass}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{solution}}\times 100\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\frac{60}{520}\times 100\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=11.5\%$
