Problem: The molar mass of potassium phosphate (K 3PO4) isA) 173.17B) 251.37C) 212.27 

FREE Expert Solution

The ­atomic mass of K is 39.10 g/mol, that of P is 30.97 g/mol and that of O is 16.00 g/mol

We multiply each atomic mass by the number present in the chemical formula and then add them together to get the molar mass.
