In order to determine how many grams of Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) one must add to 1 Liter of water to make a 12.0 M solution, one must first know the molar mass of NaOH, and how to determine molarity.

In this case, the molar mass of NaOH is 39.997 grams/mole. The formula for molarity is:

Molarity (M)=moles solute/Liters solution

Since the final molarity of our solution is to be made in 1 Liter of water, one must calculate how many grams of the solute, in this case NaOH, to add to 1...
