Molarity is a way of expressing the concentration of solute in a solution. It is the number of moles of solute in one liter of a solution.

Glucose has a chemical formula C6H12O6 and its molar mass is 180.16 g/mole.

A solution of glucose with molarity 1 M has one mole of glucose in every liter of solution. If one liter of 1 M solution of glucose has to be prepared, one mole of glucose is required. One mole of glucose is equivalent to 180.16 g of glucose.

To prepare one liter of 1 M solution of glucose 180.16 grams of glucose is required.
