Calculate the formula mass for each compound.
Here, we have to calculate the formula mass for each compound. So, first let’s see what is formula mass.
The formula mass of a molecule is the sum of the atomic weights of the atoms in the empirical formula of the compound. It is also known as formula weight. It is expressed in amu.
Steps to find the formula mass :
1. Determine the molecular formula of the molecule.
2. Use the periodic table to determine the atomic mass of each element in the molecule.
3. Multiply each element's atomic mass by the number of atoms of that element in the molecule. This number is represented by the subscript next to the element symbol in the molecular formula.
4. Add these values together for each different atom in the molecule.
