Molar Mass & Percent Composition

Moles How many moles are present? CH4 C = 1 mol, H = 4 mol.

Molar Mass Mass of 4 mol of H = 4 x 1.0 g = 4.0 g
Molar mass of any substance is the mass (in grams) of 1 mol of the substance. The molar mass is obtained by summing the masses of the component atoms. CH4 Mass of 1 mol of C = 1 x 12.0 g = 12.0 g Mass of 4 mol of H = 4 x 1.0 g = g Mass of 1 mol of CH4 = 16.0 g

Molar Mass H2O Mass of 2 mol of H = 2 x 1.0 g = 2.0 g
Mass of 1 mol of O = 1 x 16.0 g = 16.0 g Mass of 1 mol of H2O = 18.0 g

Percent Composition The % mass that one particular element contributes to an entire compound. to calculate… ~ find total mass of one molecule ~ ÷ mass of element (part) by total mass (whole) ~ x by 100 Mass percent = mass element present x 100 mass compound

What is the Mass Percent of Na2S? Step 1 find Molar Mass.
Example What is the Mass Percent of Na2S? Step 1 find Molar Mass. Na = 2 x 23.0 = 46.0 g S = 1 x 32.0 = g Molar Mass = 78.0g Step 2 divide individual elements mass by the molar mass of entire compound. Sodium = (46.0 g / 78.0 g) x 100 = 59.0% Sulfur = (32.0g / 78.0g) x 100 = 41.0%

Calculate the mass percent of C10H14O. Carbon = 10 x 12.0g = 120.0g
Practice #1 Calculate the mass percent of C10H14O. Carbon = 10 x 12.0g = 120.0g Hydrogen = 14 x 1.0g = 14.0g Oxygen = 1 x 16.0g = 16.0g Molar mass = 150.0g

Practice #1 Mass Carbon = 120.0g /150.0g x 100 = 80.0% Mass Hydrogen = 14.0g/150.0g x 100 = 9.3% Mass Oxygen = 16.0g / g x 100 = 10.7%

Practice #2 Determine mass percent of sulfuric acid. H4(SO4)2
Hydrogen = 4 x 1.0g = 4.0g Sulfur = 2 x 32.1g = 64.2g Oxygen = 8 x 16.0g = 128.0g Molar Mass = 196.2g

Practice #2 Mass Hydrogen = 4.0g / 196.2g x 100 = 2.04% Mass Sulfur = 64.2g / 196.2g x 100 = 32.7% Mass Oxygen = 128.0g / 196.2g x 100 = 65.2%

Practice #3 Determine mass percent of sulfuric acid. Ca(NO3)2
Calcium = 1 x 40.1g = 40.1g Nitrogen = 2 x 14.0g = 28.0g Oxygen = 6 x 16.0g = 96.0g Molar Mass = 164.1g

Practice #3 Mass Calcium = 40.1g / 164.1g x 100 = 24.4% Mass Nitrogen = 28.0g / 164.1g x 100 = 17.1% Mass Oxygen = 96.0g / 164.1g x 100 = 58.5%

EMPIRICAL AND MOLECULAR FORMULAS
Empirical formula---lowest ratio of elements in compound Molecular formula ---actual ratio of elements in compounds Subscripts are mole ratios

Compounds may have the same empirical formula but different molecular formulas.
For example CH is the empirical formula for C2H2 and C6H6 If the subscripts can be reduced, then the formula is a molecular formula.

Empirical Formulas CH2O The lowest whole # ratio of a
compound. (reduce the subscripts down if you can) Ex. the empirical formula for glucose (C6H12O6) would be… CH2O to calculate from % composition… 1. ÷ given % by atomic mass (to find moles) 2. ÷ each mole in step 1 by lowest mole value (to find ratio) 3. values from step 2 = subscripts ~ subscripts MUST be a whole # (multiply if they are not!)

Empirical Formulas Na SO *** practice…
1. What is the empirical formula of a compound that contains 36.5% sodium, 25.4% sulfur and 38.1% oxygen? Na = 36.5% = 1.59 moles = 2 23g 0.794 Na SO 2 3 S = 25.4% = moles *** = 1 32g subscripts 0.794 O = 38.1% = 2.38 moles = 3 16g 0.794

Empirical Formulas x 3 = 3 x 3 = 4 Fe O *** more practice…
2. What is the empirical formula of a compound that contains 72.4% iron (Fe) and 27.6% oxygen? Fe = 72.4% = moles *** = 1 x 3 = 3 56 1.293 O = 27.6% = moles = 1.33 x 3 = 4 16 1.293 MUST be a whole #!!! Fe O 3 4

FINDING MOLECULAR FORMULA FROM EMPIRICAL FORMULA
You must be given the actual molecular molar mass of the compound in the problem. Divide the actual molecular mass by the empirical formula mass. Then multiply all the subscripts by your answer. For example the actual molar mass of the previous compound is 88.0g. The empirical formula mass is 44.0g

88.0g/44.0g = 2 C2H4O X 2 = C4H8O2

LEARNING CHECK!!! Which of the following are empirical formulas and which are molecular?
