# How many moles are present in 0.5 liters of a 2 M solution?

## Question:

How many moles are present in 0.5 liters of a 2 M solution?

## Molarity:

Molarity is a measure of the concentration of a chemical solution. It calculates the number of moles of a solute that is dissolved in a liter of the solution. The formula for calculating molarity is: {eq}\rm Molarity =\dfrac{\text{Moles of a solute}}{\text{Volume of the solution in liters}} {/eq}.
