# Mass Molarity Calculator

The mass molarity calculator is used to calculate the mass required to prepare a specific concentration solution for compounds with known molecular weights. To calculate the volume of concentrate to achieve a specified volume and concentration, use Solution Dilution Calculator. To determine the pH value of an aqueous solution of a given compound, or the molar concentration of a specific pH value solution, use pH Calculator.

Formula weight:
g/mol

Desired final volume:

Desired concentration:

A stock solution is prepared by weighing out an appropriate portion of a pure solid or by measuring out an appropriate volume of a pure liquid and diluting to a known volume. Exactly how this is done depends on the required concentration units. For example, to prepare a solution with a desired molarity you would weigh out an appropriate mass of the reagent, dissolve it in a portion of solvent, and bring to the desired volume. To prepare a solution where the solute's concentration is given as a volume percent, you would measure out an appropriate volume of solute and add sufficient solvent to obtain the desired total volume.

Mass, molar concentration, volume, and formula weight are related to each other as follows:

Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) * Volume (L) * Formula Weight (g/mol)

For example, if we want to prepare 500 mL of approximately 0.20 mol/L potassium thiosulfate solution by using solid potassium thiosulfate. Since the concentration only needs to be known to two significant figures, the mass of potassium thiosulfate and volume of solution do not need to be measured exactly. The desired mass of potassium thiosulfate is

Mass= 0.2 mol/L* 0.5 L* 190.32 g/mol= 19.032 g

To prepare the solution we place 19.032 g of potassium thiosulfate, weighed it and add approximately 500 mL of solution.
