Calculate Molarity | What Is Molarity?


Let us see the simple and the easiest explanation about- Molarity calculations, Definition of molarity and "What is Molarity" in Brief:-


  • Molarity is the number of moles of solute per unit volume of a solution.
  • Molarity measures the strength of a solution.
  • Solution is made up of a solute as well as solvent.
  • More the solute higher the strength as well as concentration of the solution.
  • More the solvent lesser the strength as well as concentration of the solution.



Formula of Molarity:- Molarity = Moles of solute/Litres of solution


To make the term molarity more clear let us see an example.

Example: Find out the molarity of 200ml solution with 0.2 moles of NaCl.

Here the solution is in ml so we have to convert it into Litre, Hence 200/1000 = 0.2L

Therefore as per formula:-

 Molarity =0.2moles of solute/0.2Litre of solution

Hence the anwer is 1 Molar  or 1 moles/L

I hope it is now clear that what is molarity, its unit and how to calculate molarity.


Thank you

FULL FORM OF API What is the full form of API in pharma industry? Answer:Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient API is the central ingredient or the main ingredient used in medicines or pharmaceutical products. Substance other than API are called excipients. In simple words we can say that API is the chemical used in medicine which causes direct effect on the disease.

Applications of Conductometry

Some applications of conductometry are discussed here, conductometry in analytical chemistry is used to measure the progress of chemical reactions. Conductometric titration is carried out in order to measure the  electrical conductivity of the reaction mixture. This type of titration gives a sharp end point for the colored solution.

This type of titration is used to check water pollution in lakes as well as rivers.It is also used to check the alkalinity of the fresh waterSalinity of the sea water can also be checked by this method.It is also used to trace antibiotics.Used for tracing microorganism in food microbiologyTo check the solubility of sparingly soluble salts.Purity of distilled water and de ionised water can determined.
