# What is the mass of a mole of sucrose (C12H22O11)?

Sep 30, 2017

$342 \frac{g}{\text{mol}}$

#### Explanation:

Just get out that Periodic Table of the Elements, find the atomic masses for each atom, and add them up!
Carbon = 12
Hydrogen = 1
Oxygen = 16

$C = 12 \times 12 = 144$
$H = 1 \times 22 = 22$
$O = 16 \times 11 = 176$

Sucrose $= 144 + 22 + 176 = 342 \frac{g}{\text{mol}}$
