Finding the molar mass of a compound.
- Look up the molar masses of the elements within the compound using the periodic table. - Add up the masses and express in grams.
- Round the molar masses to two decimal places. The more decimal the places the more precise your answer is.

Steps:
1) Determine how many atoms of each element are within the compound. 2) Determine the molar mass of each element.
3) Multiply the molar mass of each element by how many atoms of that element are within the compound. 4) Add up the numbers produced in step three.

Ex. 1: Calculate the molar mass of C6H4Cl2. 1) 6 C atoms, 4 H atoms, 2 Cl atoms
2) C = 12.01 g, H = 1.01 g, Cl = 35.45 g.
3) C = 6 × 12.01 g = 72.06 g,
H = 4 × 1.01 g = 4.04 g,
Cl = 2×35.45 g = 70.9 g.
4) 72.06 g + 4.04 g + 70.9 g = 147 g = molar mass = 1 mol C6H4Cl2

It is easier to set up the equation as: 6 C = 6 × 12.01 g = 72.06 g
4 H = 4 × 1.01 g = 4.04 g

2 Cl = 2 × 35.45 g = 70.9 g

molar mass = 147 g C6H4Cl2

Ex. 2: Calculate the molar mass of Mg3(PO4)2
We have 2 PO4

Ex. 3: Calculate the molar mass for Cu(NO3)2·6H2O

Calculations Relating the Number of Moles and The Mass of Substance.

Why we do calculations.
- THE TEACHER MAKES US.
- Can determine the mass produced in a reaction.
- Can determine the amounts of reactants required to react so neither is in excess. Chemicals are expensive and a waste is no good.

Two Possible Conversion Factors.
