Section 2 - Concentration and Molarity
In a solution, the solute is distributed evenly throughout the solvent. This means that any part of a solution has the same ratio of solute to solvent as any other part of the solution. This ratio is the concentration of the solution. Calculating Concentration Parts Per Million Concentrations can be expressed in many forms. One unit of concentration used in pollution measurements that involve very low concentrations is parts per million, or ppm. Parts per million is the number of grams of solute in 1 million grams of solution. For example, the concentration of lead in drinking water may be given in parts per million.

Formula for Parts Per Million from reference table.
Used for concentration that are very small.

Molarity It is often convenient for chemists to discuss concentrations in terms of the number of solute particles in solution rather than the mass of particles in solution. Since the mole is the unit chemists use to measure the number of particles, they often specify concentrations using molarity. Molarity describes how many moles of solute are in each liter of solution. The symbol M is read as “molar” or as “moles per liter.” Any amount of this solution has the same ratio of solute to solution.

Calculating with Molarity
In working with solutions in chemistry, you will find that numerical Calculations often involve molarity. The key to all such calculations is the definition of molarity, which is stated as an equation below from the reference table.

Dilution: The process of adding more solvent to a solution.
Dilution Formula: M1 = Initial Molarity of solution V1 = Initial Volume of solution M2 = Final Molarity of solution V2 = Final Volume of solution M1V1 = M2V2

A town located downstream from a chemical plant was concerned about
fluoride ions from the plant leaking into its drinking water. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the fluoride ion concentration in drinking water cannot exceed 4 ppm. The town hired a chemist to analyze its water. The chemist determined that a 175-gram sample of the town's water contains gram of fluoride ions. How many parts per million of fluoride ions are present in the analyzed sample? 1.43 ppm What is the concentration of a solution, in parts per million, if 0.02 gram of Na3PO4 is dissolved in 1000 grams of water? 1. 20 ppm 2. 2 ppm ppm ppm
