First things first.

Molarity is moles/volume

Have you manipulated your given information into something that has units of either volume or moles?
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

nvm i figured it out the equation is .125g/52g/(81.3g/1000)= .0296m
