Step 1

For determining the mass of solute in 0.500 L of 0.30 M glucose.

1. Calculate the number of moles of glucose present in 0.500 L of solution.
2. Calculate the molar mass of glucose.
3. Calculate the mass of glucose (solute) using the moles of glucose and molar mass of glucose.
Step 2

Molarity is defined as the number of moles present in 1 L of the solution. Using the relation between molarity and moles, the number of moles is calculated as follows:

Step 3

The molar mass of a compound is defined as the sum of the each constituent atom molar mass multiplied by the number of atom of each element pre...
