$\text{\color{#c34632} Mass(m): }$ is the quantity of matter which a body contains, as measured by its acceleration under a given force or by the force exerted on it by a gravitational field and it's measured by Kilograms in SI system.

$\text{\color{#c34632} Molar mass(M):}$ is a physical property defined as the mass of a given substance (chemical element or chemical compound) divided by the amount of substance and it's measured by (gram/mol) in SI system.

These two terms are related with $N = \dfrac{m}{M}$, where N is the number of moles.
