# A solution of glucose (molar mass = 180 g mol–1) in water is labelled as 10% (by mass). What would be the molality and molarity of the solution ? - Chemistry

A solution of glucose (molar mass = 180 g mol–1) in water is labelled as 10% (by mass). What would be the molality and molarity of the solution ? (Density of solution = 1.2 g mL–1)

#### Solution

"Molarity M"=(%"Mass"xx10xx"density")/"Mol. mass of solute"

=(10xx10xx1.2)/180= 0.66M

Molality=(%"Mass")/"Mol. mass of solute"xx1000/(100"-%Mass")

=10/180xx1000/90=0.617 m
