# Molarity and Number of Moles

Number of mole of solute in a solution can be calculated by using the following formula
$n= MV 1000$ where
n = number of mole of solute
M = molaruty of the solution
V = volume of the solution in cm3

Example:
How many moles of zinc sulphate is present in 200cm3 of 0.1 mol dm-3 zinc sulphate solution?

$n= MV 1000 n= (0.1)(200) 1000 =0.02mol$
