169.874# grams/mole


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 = #AgNO_3#

This gives the molar mass as

#(107.87+14.007+(3*15.999)) = 169.874# grams/mole
