# What is the mass of one mole of calcium carbonate?

Jan 1, 2017

Of $\text{calcium carbonate}$, $C a C {O}_{3}$?

#### Explanation:

The mass of 1 mole of calcium is $40.1 \cdot g$.

The mass of 1 mole of carbon is $12.01 \cdot g$.

The mass of 3 moles of oxygen is $3 \times 16.00 \cdot g$.

So sum up the numbers to give the molar mass of calcium carbonate. From where did I get these numbers?
