Textbook question

When looking through the textbook I noticed that when they calculated the molar concentration of a solute they used both the c=n/v and m=n/M.
Can anyone help me figure out why?

Re: Textbook question

I'm assuming c is concentration (ie Molarity), M is also molarity, n= number of moles, and v= volume. Can you elaborate on what "m" refers to?

I would assume that m is mass from the equation, since mass * molarity would result in n, the number of moles

Re: Textbook question

m is for the mass of the element and M is from molarity
