b. Example 2. What is the Eq/L concentration of a 5.0 g/dL CaCO3 solution?
Solution. Read the problem carefully and determine the desired unit of
concentration.
Normality (Eq/L).
Determine the GEW of the compound.

CONVERTING FROM mol/L TO Eq/L AND FROM Eq/L TO mol/L
The conversion is based on the use of TPIV expressed as Eq/mol and used as
an appropriate factor.
a. Example 1. What is the mol/L concentration of a 4 Eq/L Ba(OH)2 solution?
Solution. Read the problem carefully and determine the desired unit of
concentration.
Molarity (mol/L).
Determine the number of equivalents per mole of compound and use it as an
appropriate conversion factor to express the solution in the desired units.
