# How do you calculate the molar mass of rutile, #TiO_2# a mineral used in coloring glass?

##### 1 Answer

Add all the respective molar masses of each atom together. In this case,

#### Explanation:

Molar mass is a property of dividing the mass of a given substance by the amount of the substance, thus,

=> Where

=> Where

=> Where

Normally, if we are not given any other variables like mass and mols, we have to calculate the molar mass ourselves. To do this, we use the Periodic Table.

Under every element, you are given a number with 2 digits behind the decimal. This number corresponds to the average molar mass of each element. We are going to use this average value to calculate the molar mass of

Add them all up and you have the molar mass of the compound.

#204.38 + 32 = 246.38#

Hope this helps :)
