Name each compound and calculate its formula mass.
Step 1 of 3
Here, we are going to write the name and calculate the formula mass.
Formula mass is the average mass of the molecule of a compound.
Formula mass of a molecule can be calculated by using the following formula.
Formula mass = (no of atoms of the element ) x (atomic mass of 1st element) + (no of atoms of the element ) x (atomic mass of 2nd element) +...
The chemical name of the compound is Platinum(IV) oxide.
= 1 x(atomic mass of Pt)+ 2 x(atomic mass of O )
= 1 x 195.08 + 2 x 16.00 amu
= 227.08 amu
The formula mass of PtO2 is 227.08 amu.
The chemical name of the compound is Dinitrogen pentaoxide
= 2 x(atomic mass of N)+ 5 x(atomic...
