Problem: What is the molarity of a solution containing 55.8 g of MgCl2 dissolved in 1.00 L of solution?

FREE Expert Solution

Recall that molarity is the ratio of the moles of solute and the volume of solution (in liters). In other words:


Molarity = moles soluteLiter Solution


We need the molar mass to convert mass to moles. 

Molar mass MgCl2 = 95.2 g/mol
