Answer:

How else but by experiment and measurement........?

Explanation:

Now these days we are lucky. Densities and solubilities are extensively quoted on the web.

And #"density,"# #rho# #=# #"Mass"/"Volume"#,

And #"concentration,"# #=# #"Moles of solute"/"Volume of solution"#

At least for aqueous solutions, the volume does not change substantially upon dissolution of a solute.

Common solubilities, and solution densities are extensively tabulated in the CRC handbook, but again this is an experimental proposition.
