Concentration, formerly known as molarity, a measure of the concentration of a solution, expressed as the number of moles. (It is different from molality, which is the number of moles in a liter of solvent.) For example, a solution containing 0.2 moles per liter of solution has a concentration of 0.2 molar (written 0.2M).
