The molarity of the solution can't be 0.0368 m. It can be 0.0368 molar or it can be 0.0368 molal. Which is it.

I think you MUST have meant molality.
molality = mols/kg solvent
0.0368 m = mols/0.00831 kg.
Solve for mols = 0.0368 x 0.00831
mols = g/molar mass
You know mols and g, solve for molar mass.

so i got 0.0368 x 0.00831 = 3.06 x 10^-4
and the molar mass of ethanol is 46 grams

so can some one help me in where to plug these in right please

  1. 3.06 10^-4 is correct for the mols.
    mols = g/molar mass.
    You know mols and you know grams. Solve for molar mass of the unknown compound. (Ethanol is the solvent, not the unknown.
