# What is the HCl of 2.00 x 10 squared mL of 0.51?

## Question:

What is the HCl of 2.00 x 10 squared mL of 0.51?

## The Solution of a Problem involving Words:

Certain words have mathematical meanings, and we must use appropriate mathematical signs to obtain a solution. e.g. 2 of 3 means 2 multiplied by 3, which and is equal to 6; 33% of 25 means 33 divided by 100 and then multiplied by 25, which is equal to 8.25.

2.00 x 10 squared ml means:

{eq}\rm 2\times 10^2 = 200 ml {/eq}

2.00 x 10 squared ml of 0.51 means 200 ml of 0.51 (the term 'of' reffers to a mutlipllication), So:

200 ml of 0.51{eq}\rm = 200 \times 0.51 = 102 ml {/eq}

Thus, HCl of 2.00 x 10 squared ml of 0.51 is 102 ml.
