🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Ghosh's class at GS.
The maximum allowable concentration of lead in drinking water is 9.0 ppb.
Calculate the molarity of lead in a 9.0- ppb solution.
We’re being asked to determine the molarity of lead (Pb) in a 9.0-ppb solution. Let’s first define ppm and ppb.
• 1 ppm means 1 part of solute for every 106 parts of the solution
in terms of solutions:
• 1 ppb means 1 part of solute for every 109 parts of the solution
