To calculate the molar mass of a compound, we take the atomic mass of each element present in the compound and add them all together.
In the given compound, the parenthesis means that all elements inside the parenthesis are multiplied by the subscript outside the parenthesis, which is 2. For Ca(C2H3O2)2, the number of each element are:
Ca = 1 H = 3 × 2 = 6
C = 2 × 2 = 4 O = 2 × 2 = 4
Calculate the molar mass of the following:
