1) The solubility of solid R in water is: 0.71 g/100 mL at 0°C, 24.0g/100 mL at 100°C. a) How many mL of boiling water are required to dissolve 94.5 g of R?(report to the nearest mL) If solution were cooled to 0°C, how many grams of R would crystallize out? (report to one decimal place) (Show calculations)

A) Set up proportion calculation: 

24.0g/100 mL = 94.5g / ? mL (cross multiply) 

(94.5 / 24) x 100 = 393.75 mL  (or 393.8 mL) of boiling water required to dissolve 94.5 g of R 

B) You will need to determine how much of R will be soluble at 0 degrees in 393.75 mL of water. Set up a proportion again. 

0.71 g / 100 mL = ? g/ 393.75 mL 

(393.75 x 0.71) / 100 = 2.795625 = around 2.8 grams would crystallize.
