We’re asked to determine the number of atoms of each element present in the BaSO4molecule, along with its molar mass.
The number of atoms is obtained from the empirical formula, which is the simplest whole-number ratio formula of a compound.
On the other hand, the Molar Mass (MM) of the molecule is determined from the Molar Mass of each element that constitutes it multiplied by the number of atoms of that element.
Determine the number of atoms for each element present in the following molecule: BaSO4
Using the periodic table of elements, determine the molar mass for this molecule:
