hi there, been doing a chemistry investigation in to the ethanol in wine.i have a result for the ethanol content in moll-1 but im struggling to calculate what the average amount of ethanol in 12.5% 750 ml bottle to compare my resultany help into getting an answer would be greatly appreciated
I don't understand what you are trying to calculate. Anyway, have a go at it first!
I think he's after the concentration in moles/litreNow, in scientific journals I'm quite happy to see that written as M.L-1but on a website it's likely to get messed up, particularly if the superscripting doesn't work.Incidentally, it's not as trivial a question as it looks.You need to be able to convert %v/v to %m/v then convert %m/v to g/l then turn that into moles/litre.Not rocket science; none of the steps is difficult, but it's easy enough to miss out a stage. Also someone has thrown a red herring into the data.
