We’re being asked to calculate the molarity (M) of a solution of NaI. Recall that molarity is the ratio of the moles of solute and the volume of solution (in liters). In other words:

We first need to determine the number of moles of NaI since this is the only information missing for us to find molarity. Notice that the volume of the solution in liters is already given.

We’re given the mass of NaI, 10.7 g. We can use the molar mass of NaI to find the moles. The molar mass of NaI is

The moles of NaI is:

0.0714 mol

We know that the volume of the solution is 0.250 L. We can now calculate for molarity:
