Answer:

Well, I rarely use these definitions.......

Explanation:

...but in the context is not the #"osmolarity"# of sucrose equivalent to its #"molarity"#...?

Sucrose is a molecular species that does not undergo speciation in solution, and so.......

#"Osmolarity"="Moles of solute"/"Volume of solution"=((171*g)/(342.30*g*mol^-1))/(1.0*L)=1/2*mol*L^-1#
