Solution Preview

Steps in finding the mass of solute needed to prepare a solution of certain molarity:

a) Solve for the mole of solute needed.
The following working equation is useful:
Molarity = M = mole solute / volume of solution in liter

Hence,
Mole solute = Molarity x volume of solution in liter

b) Compute for the mass in gram of the solute needed.
Mass of solute in gram = mole solute x molar mass of the solute

1. How many grams of NaOH are needed to make 1M solution?
Note: Since the volume of the solution to be prepared is not specified, let us assume a volume of 100 ...
