# Determine the Amount of Sodium Sulfate in 500g Solution

## Calculation of Sodium Sulfate Amount

The given solution is at a mass percentage of 1:5, which means 1 part of solute to 5 parts of solvent. To determine the amount of sodium sulfate in 500g of this solution, we first need to find the mass of the solute (sodium sulfate) using the mass percentage.

Mass percentage of sodium sulfate = 1%

Mass of sodium sulfate = 1% of 500g = 0.01 * 500g = 5g

Therefore, there are 5 grams of sodium sulfate in 500g of the solution.
