# How to Calculate Molarity?

How do you calculate molarity of a solution?

## Molarity Calculation

**Molarity** is a measure of the concentration of a solute in a given quantity of solution. It is calculated in terms of amount of substance present in a given volume of liquid. Here is the brief tutorial on how to calculate molarity of a substance in a given quantity of solution using the below simple steps.

**Formula:**

**Molarity (M) = Moles of Solute / Litres of Solution**

**Step 1: Considering an example**

What is the molarity of 1.35 moles of sugar in 2.5 litres of water?

Assign values as per the above given example.

Moles of Solute = 1.35

Litres of Solution = 2.5

**Step 2: Calculating the Molarity by substituting the values**

Molarity (M) = 1.35 / 2.5

= 0.54 Moles / Litre

Hence, the Molarity of 1.35 moles of sugar in 2.5 litres of water is 0.54 moles / litre.
