Answer:

#"Concentration"# #=# #("Moles of solute")/("Volume of solution")#

Explanation:

If we have #1.00# #kg# of water, there is #1.00# #L# of water. (Note that volume would not change substantially upon dissolution of the salt).

Thus, #"Molarity"# #=# #((174*cancelg)/(58.44*cancelg*mol^-1))/(1.00*L)# #~~# #3# #mol*L^-1#
