Learnt it last year, but i have completely forgotten it! :P Thanks a lot though! :)

    Divide it by its molecular mass,

    m/V = gram/dm^3

    n/V = (m/Mr)/V = mol/dm^3

    n = m/Mr

    Mole per dm3 = wt of given compound/molar mass of the compound. When this amount is dissolved in 1L we have a solution containing 1mole per dm3.

    Example a solution containing 25g NaOH/dm3 = 25/40 = 0.625mole NaOH per dm3

    I learned factor labeling (i think thts wat its called)

    g/dm^3 * mol/g = mol/dm^3

    when u multiply by mol/g, the two "g" cancel out. I believe molar mass is g/mol so just multiply by the inverse of that since you want mols on top and the grams to cancel out
