I suspect by gL you mean g/L. Borrowing from another Q/A here:

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_grams_of_salt_are_in_one_cup We'll assume 1 cup sea salt is 400 grams. 1 gallon = 3.7854L, so 1cup salt in 1 gal water = 400/3.7854 = 106 g/L You're asking for RSD in a way that doesn't make sense - maybe rephrase it or describe the information you're looking for.

Chlorine is usually produced by the electrolysis of seawater.

The cup of seawater has more salt, but the concentration, that is, the amount that it is diluted, is exactly the same.

Relative salinity is the most important factor in seawater density.

The five most abundant elements in seawater would be Oxygen, Hydrogen, Chlorine, Sodium, and Magnesium.

Oxygen as component of water molecule.

This compound is sodium chloride (NaCl).

Saltwater pools are not seawater pools. Saltwater pools contain less than 1/3 as salty as seawater. What they use is a chlorine generator to convert salt to chlorine. This eliminates the requirement to add chlorine and other chemicals to your pool. The level of salt is approximate the same as softened water. The good side is you only have to add enough salt to replace what is splashed out as salt unlike chlorine doesn't evaporate.

Seawater is a mixture of various salts and water. Only six elements and compounds comprise about 99% of sea salts: chlorine, sodium, sulfur, magnesium, calcium and potassium. The relative abundance of the major salts in seawater is constant regardless of the ocean. Only the amount of water in the mixture varies because of differences between ocean basins because of regional differences in freshwater loss (evaporation) and gain (runoff and precipitation). The chlorine ion makes up 55% of the salt in seawater.

As evaporation proceeds there is less and less water left and the concentration of salts increases until the salt concentration reaches the saturation point. After this as evaporation continues the salts come out of solution and begin to form salt crystals.

It produces chlorine as it's toxic gas.

The concentration of salts is expressed in g/L.

The concentration of DDT in the fish is 430,000 times greater than the concentration of DDT in the water.

It should say, "Magnesium and CHLORINE make up most of the ions in seawater." Not chloride.

For example chlorine from submarine volcanoes, to form sodium chloride.

The concentration of sodium chloride in seawater is variable; as an average the value is 35 g NaCl/kg water.

It is high in salt concentration, drying out the tissues.

This measure is called concentration, expressed in g/L.

Mostly carbonates and bicarbonates while seawater is dominated by sodium and chlorine.

Sodium (as the cation Na +) and chlorine (as the anion chloride, Cl-).

The average salinity of seawater is about 35 parts per thousand or 3.5%.

Approx. 2 000 micromoles CO2 (gas or ions) in 1L water.

They are the hydrogen and oxygen of the water itself. After that it's chlorine and sodium.
