Vinegar, which is just a dilute acetic acid solution, is very common and versatile. The concentration of store-bought vinegar is 5.0 % solution by mass, and its density is approximately 1.01 g/mL.
(a) Determine the molarity of acetic acid in vinegar.
(b) If I use 2 cups (473.2 mL) of vinegar from part (a) to help create a cleaning solution for my windows, how many molecules of acetic acid is this?
(c) How many atoms of carbon are in 2 cups of this new vinegar you made in part (a)?
