(b) N2O5

(c) Al(ClO3)3

(d) PBr5

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 99P

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) +...

(a) PtO2

The chemical name of the compound is Platinum(IV) oxide.

Formula mass

=  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.

(b) N2O5

The chemical name of the compound is Dinitrogen pentaoxide

Formula mass

= 2 x(atomic mass of N)+ 5 x(atomic...
