# What is the molar mass of silver nitrate?

Jul 25, 2018

169.874# grams/mole

#### Explanation:

The molar mass of a chemical is the molecular weight of the chemical in grams.

i.e. 1 mole = (molecular mass) grams of the chemical.

Molecular weight of silver nitrate = the sum of the atomic masses of the atoms in 1 "molecule" of silver nitrate, in grams.

Formula for silver nitrate = $A g N {O}_{3}$

This gives the molar mass as

$\left(107.87 + 14.007 + \left(3 \cdot 15.999\right)\right) = 169.874$ grams/mole
