$\text{Molarity"="Moles of solute"/"Volume of solution}$

#### Explanation:

And thus molarity has units of $m o l \cdot {L}^{-} 1$.

On t'other hand, $\text{Molality"="Moles of solute"/"Kilograms of solvent}$, and thus has units of $m o l \cdot k {g}^{-} 1$.

At low aqueous concentrations, molality is equivalent to molarity. Molality is used for high end calculations in that it is independent of solution density, and thus does not vary with temperature.
