Calculate the molarity of NaOH if 25.0 grams of NaOH is dissolved in 0.750 L of solution

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

Molarity is the amount of moles of solute per volume of the solution. it can be expressed as:

`Molarity = (mol es of solute)/(Volume of the solution (L))`

Usually the unit is expressed in moles/L.

Given:

25.0 grams NaOH

0.750L solution

First, convert the given amount of NaOH from mass to moles and obtain the molarity by dividing it with the volume of the solution.

`25.0 grams NaOH * (1 mol e NaOH)/(39.9971 grams NaOH)`

`= 0.625 mol es NaOH`

Finally,

`Molarity = (0.625 mol es NaOH)/(0.750 L)`

**Molarity = 0.833 Molar or M or moles/L**
