```SKILL #3 MOLAR MASS OF A COMPOUND
OBJECTIVE: to calculate the grams of mass that corresponds to one mole (6.02 x
1023 particles) of a substance.
WHAT YOU NEED:
A) Mass numbers from the periodic table.
B) The molecular formula of the compound.
PROCEDURE
A) Using subscripts, calculate the number of each element in the compound.
NOTE – ignore reaction coefficients for this calculation.
a.
A subscript defines the number of each element written immediately
before it.
b. A subscript defines and is distributed through each parenthesis that
immediately precedes it.
EX- for Pb(CO3)2 there are 2 carbons, six
B) IN A CHART STRUCTURE multiply each mass number by the number of
each element. (do NOT assess significant figures yet).
C) Add each elements mass product to the others, this is the molar mass.

Since the last operation is addition and the number with the fewest decimal
places (207.2) has one decimal place, your molar mass should be rounded to
one decimal place, which is 297.2
