Solution Prep

To prepare a solution, determine the formula weight of the material, the concentration (Molarity) of the solution, and the amount of solution desired in Liters. Once this information has been obtained, use the following formula:
(Formula Weight) x (Concentration) x (Desired Volume) = Number of grams in desired volume of liquid

For a 1 M, 1 L solution:
(Formula Weight) x (1 mol/L) x (1 L) = x g added to 1-L volumetric flask. Dilute to a final volume of 1 L with DI Water.
