Question Chemistry unit lab problem

Hi everyone,

Wondering if someone could help me with this lab problem. I can't get my head around it.
NaOH= 40,00g/mol
p = 2,10 g/cm3
I want 100 ml aq with 0,400 mol/kg

How do I solve this?

Thanks in advance

First it is 40g/mol for NaOH which you can write as 0.04kg per mole
I want 100 ml aq with 0,400 mol/kg
what is it?
are you using commas in place of decimal?
please post question again accurately if you want help

Thanks for the reply.

Actually, I have found the answer to my problem, which was quite simple (given I'd not do it at 12:00).

The comas are from the French unit system in which we do not use dots to represents decimals.

Sorry for the confusion, I'll try to be clearer if I do post again!

Good evening

The 40.00g/mol represents the significative numbers
