Various Concentration Terms Concentration is defined as amount of solute per amount of solution or solvent. The "amounts" you chose is what gives each concentration term it's own uniqueness. percent conc = (mass of solute)/(mass of solution) x 10 2 ppm = (mass of solute)/(mass of solution) x 10 6 ppb = (mass of solute)/(mass of solution) x 10 9 molarity = (mol of solute)/(liters of solution) For the rest of this page, concentration is assumed to be in MOLARITY. Molarity Concentration is often depicted with square brackets around the solute of interest. concentration of hydrogen ion is depicted as [H + ]. The concentration is assumed to be molarity (mol/L or mmol/mL). Concentration is also sometimes shown as molarity with an italicized capital "M" and a subscript for the solute. The concentration of hydroxide would be M OH - . Unfortunately, italics are not always used - sometimes, like here, the non-italized version just looks better (M OH - ).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
