# Determine the amount of sodium actually added (in grams), state the chemical formula of salt, and classify the bond as ionic, polar covalent, or non-polar covalent when six teaspoons of salt are erroneously added instead of three, given that each teaspoon weighs about 5g and contains about 2,300 mg of sodium

Summary:

When six teaspoons of salt are added instead of three, 13.8 grams of sodium is added. The chemical formula for the salt is NaCl, and the bond is ionic. Each teaspoon of salt weighs about 5g and contains about 2,300 mg of sodium, leading to a total of 13,800 mg (13.8 g) of sodium in six teaspoons.

Determine the amount of sodium that has been actually added, in grams. And state the chemical formula of salt and classify the bond as ionic, polar covalent, or non-polar covalent:A freshman is currently enjoying the Arts Studio program she is pursuing at a well-known university. In her free time, she likes to skate, take salsa dance lessons, and cook. She particularly enjoys pickling and decides to pickle olives over a leisurely weekend. According to the recipe, she needs to add three teaspoons of salt to one cup of diced olives. However, she erroneously adds six teaspoons instead. Each teaspoon of salt weighs about 5g and contains about 2,300 mg of sodium.

The college freshman is making a pickle and according to the recipe she needs to add three teaspoons of salt to one cup of diced olives. However, she erroneously adds six teaspoons instead.

Each teaspoon of salt weighs about 5g and contains about 2,300 mg of sodium.

As each teaspoon of salt weighs 5g and contains 2300 mg of sodium, 6 teaspoons of salt contains 2300*6 = 13800 mg of sodium. The freshman adds 13.8 g of sodium.

The usual salt used in pickles is sodium chloride that has a formula NaCl. The bonding between sodium and chlorine in this salt is ionic in nature. Sodium atoms lose an electron and are positively charged and chlorine atoms gain an atom and are negatively charged. These oppositely charged particles are attracted to each other in an ionic bond.

A student decides to pickle olives, the recipe calls for three teaspoons of salt to one cup of diced olives. She mistakenly adds six teaspoons instead. Each teaspoon of salt weighs about 5g and contains about 2300 mg of sodium.

When the student adds 6 teaspoons of salt, she adds 2300*6 = 13800 mg = 13.8 g of sodium in the pickle. This follows from the fact that each teaspoon contains 2300 mg of sodium and 6 teaspoons of salt are added.

The chemical formula for the salt of sodium used in cooking is sodium chloride or NaCl. Sodium chloride is an ionic compound. It has positively charged sodium ions Na+ and negatively charged chloride ions or Cl-.

The original recipe involves the addition of 3 teaspoons of salt to one cup of diced olives. Instead, six teaspoons are added erroneously. Each teaspoon weighs 5 g and contains 2300 mg of sodium.

As six teaspoons of salt are added, the amount of sodium added is 2300*6 mg = 13.8 g

The chemical formula of common salt that is used while cooking food is sodium chloride or NaCl. The sodium and chlorine atoms in sodium chloride are bonded by an ionic bond. The sodium atom loses an electron to form Na+ and the Chlorine atom gains an atom to form Cl-. As the charge of the two ions is opposite in nature, they are attracted to each other and form the compound sodium chloride.
