Answer:

#"Molarity"# #=# #"Moles of solute"/"Volume of solution"#, so here we need #29.22*g# of #NaCl#

Explanation:

And thus, #(29.22*g)/(58.44*g*mol^-1)xx1/(1*L)# #=# #0.500*mol*L^-1#.

You might ask as to whether the volume of water would change (up or down upon dissolution of the salt. The volume change would be imperceptible.
