Chemical Formulas and Chemical Compounds Using Chemical Formulas Definitions: Formula Mass: sum of the atomic masses of all the atoms in a molecule or formula unit; measured in amu Example: H2O 2 1 . 00794 amu 15 . 9994 amu 18 . 0153 amu For water this can also be called the Molecular Mass Definitions Molar Mass – the mass of one mole of a substance; numerically equal to the formula mass; measure in g/mol • The formula mass of H2O is 18.0153 amu • The molar mass of H2O is 18.0153 g/mol Sample Problems 1. What is the mass in grams of 3.04 moles of ammonia vapor, NH3? 2. Calculate the mass of 0.257 moles of calcium nitrate. 3. The odor of bananas is due to the compound isopentyl acetate, C7H14O2. How many moles of isopentyl acetate are present in a 5.0 gram sample of the compound? 4. When bees sting, they also release the compound isopentyl acetate.

What is the percentage of glucose in the mixture? Percentage Compositon Percentage Composition – the percentage by mass of each element in a compound mass of element in 1 mol of compound 100 % molar mass of compound Remember: According to the law of constant composition the percentage composition for a compound is always exactly the same. Percentage Composition Example: TNT - 2, 4, 6 trinitrotoluene C – 37.017% H – 2.21883 % N – 18.5002 % O – 42.2644 % Sample Problems 1. Calculate the percentage composition of sodium nitrate. 2. What is the mass percentage of water in the hydrate, CuSO4.5H2O? 3. Zinc chloride, ZnCl2 is 52.02 % chlorine a. What mass of chlorine is contained in 80.3 g of ZnCl2? b. How many moles of Cl is this?
