what is normality?

Expert Answer:

The 'Normality' of a solution is the 'Molarity' multiplied by the number of equivalents per mole (the number moles of hydroxide or hydronium ions per mole) for the molecule. For NaOH there is one equivalent per mole (one mole of hydroxide ions release per mole of NaOH dissolved in water) so the 'Normality' is the 'Molarity' times 1 eq / mole.
