What is the molar mass of sulfuric acid #H_2SO_4#?

1 Answer

Answer:

Sulfuric acid's molar mass is #"98.08 g/mol"#.

Explanation:

Step one: Find the atomic masses in each atom -- units: #"g/mol"#

  • Hydrogen: #1.01#
  • Sulfur: #32.06#
  • Oxygen: #16#

Step two: Find how many of those atoms are of the formula:

  • Hydrogen: #2# atoms
  • Sulfur: #1# atom
  • Oxygen: #4# atoms

Step three: Add all the atomic masses together. (Note, if there are more than one of a particular atom, you must multiply it by how many of that atom is in that formula):

#"MM" = (1.01xx2) + 32.06 + (16xx4)#

#= " 98.08 g/mol"#

Hope this helped!
