Answer:

The mass in grams of 0.100 mol #"(NH"_4)_2"SO"_4"# is 13.2 g.

Explanation:

The molar mass of #"(NH"_4)_2"SO"_4"# is needed, which is #"132.13952 g/mol"#. http://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/6097028#section=Top

To determine the mass of 0.100 mol ammonium sulfate, multiply the given mole by its molar mass.

#0.100 cancel(mol (NH_4)_2SO_4)xx(132.13952 g (NH_4)_2SO_4)/(1 cancel(mol (NH_4)_2SO_4))=13.2 g (NH_4)_2SO_4"# (rounded to three significant figures)
