Calculate the molar mass of lithium carbonate, Li 2 CO 3, used to produce the red color in fireworks. © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Learning Check

Calculate the molar mass of Li 2 CO 3. Step 1Obtain the molar mass of each element. From the periodic table: © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Solution

© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Solution Calculate the molar mass of Li 2 CO 3. Step 2Multiply each molar mass by the moles (subscript) in the formula. 2 mol Li × = 13.88 g Li 1 mol C × = 12.01 g C 3 mol O × = 48.00 g O

Calculate the molar mass of Li 2 CO 3. Step 3 Calculate the molar mass by adding the masses of the elements. 2 mol Li = 13.88 g Li 1 mol C = 12.01 g C 3 mol O = 48.00 g O Molar mass Li 2 CO 3 = 73.89 g Li 2 CO 3 © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Solution
