Expert Answer:

Given:

Mass of common salt (solute) = 40 g

Mass of water (solvent) = 320 g

To Find: The ,ass concentration of the solution = ?

Solution:

Mass of solution = 320 + 40

                        = 360 g

Concentration of solution = (Mmass of solute/Mass of solution) x 100

                                    = (40/360) x 100

                                    = 11.11 % (approx.)
