Definitions for "Osmolarity"
the quantity (concentration) of dissolved substances in a solution.
A measure of solute concentration in aqueous solution. A 1 M solution of a single non-dissociating solute has an osmolarity of 1 osmol. A physiologic osmolarity is about 300 mOs, roughly equivalent to 150 mM NaCl (NaCl dissociates into Na+ and Cl-, both of which contibute to osmolarity).
Measure of number of dissolved particles in solution. Inversely related to concentration of water.
osmolaridad] a measure of the molecular tension or force applied across a bipolar membrane.
Osmolarity is similar to osmolality but is measured in units of osmoles/litre, rather than osmoles/kilogram.
