osmolarity

 [oz″mo-lar´ĭ-te]
the concentration of a solution in terms of osmoles of solutes per liter of solution.

os·mo·lar·i·ty

(oz'mō-lār'i-tē), Do not confuse this word with osmolality.
The osmotic concentration of an osmotically active substance in solution, expressed as osmoles of solute particles per liter of solution.

osmolarity

/os·mo·lar·i·ty/ (oz″mo-lar´ĭ-te) the concentration of a solution in terms of osmoles of solutes per liter of solution.

osmolarity

[oz′mōler′itē]
the osmotic pressure of a solution expressed in osmoles or milliosmoles per liter of the solution. Compare osmolality.

The osmotic concentration of a solution expressed as osmoles of solute per liter of solution.

osmolarity

The concentration of a solution in OSMOLAR units.

osmolarity

the concentration of osmotically active particles in a solution expressed in osmoles per litre (Osm.L-1) of the solution. Values for human body fluids (e.g. blood plasma) are usually expressed in milliosmoles per litre (mOsm.L-1). Compare osmolality.

osmolarity
