Density of aqueous solutions of inorganic chlorides

Changes in density of aqueous solutions with changes in concentration at 20°C. Density of inorganic chlorides in water is plotted as function of wt%, mol/kg water and mol/l solution.

Be aware of the concentration units in the figures:

wt%: Mass of solute/total mass of solution*100%

mol/kg: Molality = moles of solute/kg of water 

mol/liter: Molarity = moles of solute/liter of solution

Values are tabulated below the figures.
