Nov 7, 2016

#### Answer:

The molar mass of $\text{TiO"_2}$ is $\text{79.865 g/mol}$.

#### Explanation:

To determine the molar mass of a compound, multiply the molar mass of each element by its subscript in the formula. The molar mass of an element is its atomic weight on the periodic table in g/mol.

Molar mass of $\text{TiO"_2}$

(1xx47.867color(white)(.)"g/mol")+(2xx15.999color(white)(.)"g/mol")="79.865 g/mol"
