You need to know the volume of liquid that contains the solid to answer this question. If you have one liter of a solution that contains 0.1 grams per milliliter, you can find the number of grams in the container through this calculation:

1 liter X 1000 ml/liter X 0.1 grams/ml = 100 grams of solid in the one liter of solution (the units for liters cancel out)
