# Question #160db

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

Molarity is all about moles of solute, which in your case is sodium chloride, per liter of solution.

Simply put, a **one mole** of solute in **one liter** of solution.

In your case, a**one mole** of sodium chloride in

In order to determine how many *grams* of sodium chloride are equivalent to one mole of sodium chloride, you need to use the compound's *molar mass*.

The **molar mass** tells you exactly what you need to know - what the mass of **one mole** of a substance is. Sodium chloride has a molar mass of about

This means that **every mole** of sodium chloride has a mass of

**SIDE NOTE** *If you go by the number of sig figs you have for the molarity and volume of the solution, the answer should be*

#m_"NaCl" = "60 g"#
