# The molar mass of copper (III) chloride is equal to how many grams?

Jan 20, 2017

Are you sure it is $C u C {l}_{3}$?

#### Explanation:

$\text{Cupric chloride}$ is $C u C {l}_{2}$; $\text{cuprous chloride}$ is $C u C l$.

I don't think you would find the $C u \left(+ I I I\right)$ ion in any simple salt.

$C u C {l}_{2}$ has a molar mass of $\left(63.55 + 2 \times 35.45\right) \cdot g \cdot m o {l}^{-} 1$.
