  1. M = moles/L.
    moles ascorbic acid = grams/molar mass.
    Plug in moles and L and solve for M.

    The "old" definition (meaning years ago when I was in school) titer was defined as N x milliequivalent weight. As far as I know, IUPAC doesn't recognize equivalent weights or normality now; therefore, I don't know if the definition of titer has changed or not. I looked in two or three modern texts and did not find the term; in fact, I had to go back to an old quant book published in 1952 to find it in the appendix, along with a very good description in the text.
