# What is the molarity of a 0.28*mol quantity confined to a volume of 2.6*L?

May 25, 2017

$\text{Molarity"="Moles of solute"/"Volume of soluton} \ldots \ldots \ldots \ldots . .$

#### Explanation:

And thus...........

$\text{Molarity} = \frac{0.28 \cdot m o l}{2.6 \cdot L} = 0.108 \cdot m o l \cdot {L}^{-} 1. \ldots \ldots \ldots . .$

The quotient gives us the required units of concentration.....

$\text{moles of solute per volume of solution}$, i.e. $m o l \cdot {L}^{-} 1$.
