Problem 106P

Molecules can be as small as two atoms or as large as thousands of atoms. In 1962, Max F. Perutz and John C. Kendrew were awarded the Nobel Prize for their discovery of the structure of hemoglobin, a very large molecule that transports oxygen from the lungs to cells through the bloodstream. The chemical formula of hemoglobin is \(\mathrm{C}_{2852} \mathrm{H}_{4864} \mathrm{O}_{832} \mathrm{~N}_{812} \mathrm{~S}_{8} \mathrm{Fe}_{4}\). Calculate the formula mass of hemoglobin.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 106P

Here, we have to calculate the formula mass of hemoglobin.

Formula mass of a compound can be calculated by using the following equation.

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 formula of Hemoglobin is  C2952H4664O832N812S8Fe4.

Formula mass of Hemoglobin =

2952 x (atomic mass of C- atoms) + 4664 x (atomic mass of H- atom ) +832 x (atomic mass of O atoms) + 812 x (atomic mass of N atoms) + 8 x (atomic mass of S atoms) + 4 x(atomic mass of Fe-atoms)

  = 2952 x 12.01 amu + 4664 x 1.008 amu + 832 x 16 amu + 812 x 14.0 amu + 8 x 32.065 amu + 4 x 55.845amu

= 35453.52 amu +4701.312 amu + 13312 amu + 11368 amu +256.52 amu + 223.38 amu

= 65314.732 amu

Thus, the  formula mass of Hemoglobin is 65314.732 amu.
