Molar mass
Molar mass is the mass of a mole of that thing
The molar mass of pennies is the mass of
2 million million million tons of pennies
The molar mass of carbon is the mass of
6.02X1023 carbon atoms (which happens to be
exactly 12 grams)
Molar mass
The molar mass of:
Ca = 40.08 grams
MgCl2 = 95.2 grams
H2O = 18 grams
(using the periodic table)
Moles
There are one mole of:
Atoms in 40.08 grams of Ca (element)
Formula units in 95.2 grams of MgCl2 (ionic)
Molecules in 18 grams of H2O (molecular)
Remember that representative particles refer
to the types of substances we are measuring
Moles
1 mole of atoms in 40.08 grams of Ca
3 moles of atoms in 95.2 grams of MgCl2
3 moles of atoms in 18 grams of H2O
This will come in handy when we study
chemical reactions.
Moles
Gram atomic mass (GAM) refers to the mass of
one mole of atoms of an element
Gram molecular mass (GMM) refers to the mass of
one mole of molecules of a compound
Gram formula mass (GFM) refers to the mass of
one mole of formula units of an ionic compound

How many moles in 26.8 grams of iron?
How many moles in 26.8 grams of iron?
We are given grams of iron, so that goes
on the left
We want moles, so that must end up on
the right
Make conversion factors do that
How many moles in 26.8 grams of iron?

We will need to be able to figure out
how many grams are in a certain
number of moles.
We use the same conversion factor
as we just did, only inverted.

1 ft / 12 in
5280 ft / 1 mi
1 mi = 1.61 km
1 mi / 5280 ft
1.61 km / 1 mi
Conversion factors for calculating
moles and grams:
12 g C / mol C
Mol C / 12 g C
153.8 g CCl4 / mol CCl4
Mol CCl4 / 153.8 g CCl4
123.3 g MgSO4 / mol MgSO4
Mol MgSO4 / 123.3 g MgSO4
Things we’ll need to be able to do:
• Write chemical formulas from chemical names
– Magnesium sulfate is MgSO4
• Calculate molar mass from chemical formulas
– 123.3 g MgSO4 is one mole MgSO4
• Use conversion factors to calculate moles
from mass, and mass from moles
– 123.3 g MgSO4 / mol MgSO4
– mol MgSO4 / 123.3 g MgSO4
