    A. moles = grams/molar mass
    B. There are two moles N for every 1 mole penicillin (from the formula).
    C. (mass S/molar mass)*100 = (32/molar mass)*100 = ??
    D. No units are specified. If you want it in molarity, then M = moles/L. You have moles (from A) and you have L (from D). Substitute and solve for M.
