# How many grams of sucrose (molecular weight= 342 g mole ^-1) would you dissolve in water to make a 0.22 M sucrose solution with 1 L final volume?

The molarity of a solution is the concentration of the compound dissolved in terms of moles of the compound per liter of solution.

Here, sucrose is being dissolved in water to create a solution of sucrose and the required concentration of the sucrose solution is 0.22 M

If X grams...

The molarity of a solution is the concentration of the compound dissolved in terms of moles of the compound per liter of solution.

Here, sucrose is being dissolved in water to create a solution of sucrose and the required concentration of the sucrose solution is 0.22 M

If X grams of sucrose has to be dissolved in one liter of water to create a 0.22 M solution, X should be equal to 0.22 times the molar mass of sucrose. The molar mass of sucrose is 342 g/mole.

=> X = 0.22*342 = 75.24 g

75.24 grams of sucrose if dissolved in one liter of water would give a solution of 0.22 M.
