Here's a quick review of a past chapter:
Homogeneous mixture, when one substance is dissolved in another it is called a solution.
- the smaller quantity (being dissolved) is called a solute
- the larger quantity (dissolving) is called a solvent
The sugar would be the solute and the tea is the solvent.
Molar Concentration / Molarity is the number of moles of solute in one litre of a solution. We use the letter "M" to represent molar concentration, which has the units of "moles/L"
- Molarity= moles of solute (mol)
volume of solution (L)
- or put more simply: M=mol
- mol= MxL and L=mol

Try a practice problem :
Find the molar concentration of a solution that has 0.310 moles of LiOH² in 1.200 L of solution.
