You are comparing percentage concentration of water with amount i.e.
moles or equivalent weight of water which is quite not right.
Equivalent weights are "defined" in terms of the reaction that takes
place and I assume water does not take part in the reaction and is
present as an "impurity". You can not involve equivalent weight of
water here.

Let me assume water as a source of OH(-) in a certain reaction then:

H2O --------> H(+) + OH(-)

Then equivalent weight of water is 18/ 1 = 18 gram. equivalent, since
one water molecule is producing one hydroxide ion.


If water were being oxidized in a certain reaction, say

2H2O -------> O2 + 4H(+) + 4e

Then the equivalent weight of water would be = 2*18/4 = 9 gram
equivalent


There is a dinner riding on this.

Email the dinner to me Smile. You can well imagine why equivalents are no
longer discussed in modern texts.

I wish that was the case, but Christian's "Analytical Chemistry"
(6th ed) goes into all the gory detail.

And, in an application of Murphy's Law, no matter how many times
you tell students not to read that section, they always do (and
come with lots of questions.) The stuff they're _supposed_ to read,
on the other hand....
