Problem: What is the molarity of a solution that is made by dissolving 3.68 g of sucrose (C12H22O11) in sufficient water to form 275.0 mL of solution?

FREE Expert Solution

Recall the equation for Molarity


To solve for molarity, we need to do these steps:

  • Solve for molar mass of C12H22O11 
  • Convert the mass of solute to moles solute ( C12H22O11 )
  • Convert Volume of solution from mL to L
