The molarity of a percentage solution (w/v) can be calculated using the molar mass of the solute used. For example, sucrose (table sugar) has a molar mass of a 342.34 g/mol. A 1% sucrose solution (100ml, w/v), therefore, is 0.0029 molar, or 2.9 mM. This page refers to concentration in the chemical sense. ... Molar mass is the mass of one mole of a chemical element or chemical compound. ... A substance is soluble in a fluid if it dissolves in the fluid. ... Sucrose (common name: table sugar, also called saccharose) is a disaccharide (glucose + fructose) with the molecular formula C12H22O11. ... Molar mass is the mass of one mole of a chemical element or chemical compound. ...

 Solution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (633 words) In chemistry, a solution is a homogeneous mixture composed of one or more substances, known as solutes, dissolved in another substance, known as a solvent. An ideal solution is one where the interactions of the molecules of the solvent with each other are equal to their interactions with the solutes. If both solute and solvent exist in equal quantities (such as in a 50% ethanol, 50% water solution), the concepts of "solute" and "solvent" become less relevant, but the substance that is more often used as a solvent is normally designated as the solvent (in this example, water).
