Solution: The Freons are a class of compounds containing carbon, chlorine, and fluorine. While they have many valuable uses, they have been shown to be responsible for depletion of the ozone in the upper atmosphere. In 1991, two replacement compounds for Freons went into production: HFC-134a (CH2FCF3) and HCFC-124 (CHClFCF3). Calculate the molar masses of these two compounds.
