(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Percent of solution

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Let's say we have 5% glucose of a 10 mL solution. So that would imply that .5 mL of the solution is glucose, but that does not really tell me how much glucose. Is it assumed that the glucose is 1 molar?

I ask because in one of my bio labs we did a lab where we were given exactly as stated above. Knowing the exact amount of glucose was not needed for the lab, however, I would like to understand this for future use.

Thanks for any input.
