1. Dusting off the cobwebs...been a while since I walked through these halls...

I'm working on my masters, and one of the questions, and the rough outline of my response is written below. I would very much appreciate it if ya'll could look over it, and give me some feedback. I can fill in the fluff before submitting it...I just want to verify that my logic, and math are on par. I'll fill in the safety and method details later.

3. I think you have taken a rather roundabout way to arrive at the answer.
In your final solution of 500 g of 5% HCl, there is .05*500 = 25 g HCl .
The 37% stock solution has 37 g HCl per 100g stock. To get 25g HCl from a 37% stock solution you need
X *(37g HCl/100g stock) = 25g HCl
X=25*100/37= 67.57 grams of stock
This is how much stock you need to get 25 g HCl. The amount of water to be added is (500-67.57) grams.

4. I guess the irony of my second signature line is coming through. For some reason...I never thought of it from the standpoint of "I need 25g HCl...how do I get it...". I was trying to get everything down to grams.

I've never been good at formulas...always had to "think it out". I appreciate the feedback...and it's nice to know I was on target...even if I marched a hell of a long way around the woods to hit that target.
