Examples of molar mass in the following topics:


 A substance's molar mass can be used to convert between the mass of the substance and the number of moles in that substance.
 The molar mass of any element can be determined by finding the atomic mass of the element on the periodic table.
 For example, if the atomic mass of sulfer (S) is 32.066 amu, then its molar mass is 32.066 g/mol.
 In a compound of NaOH, the molar mass of Na alone is 23 g/mol, the molar mass of O is 16 g/mol, and H is 1 g/mol.
 Since the molar mass of NaOH is 40 g/mol, we can divide the 90 g of NaOH by the molar mass (40 g/mol) to find the moles of NaOH.

 The molar mass of a particular substance is the mass of one mole of that substance.
 Molar mass is the mass of a given substance divided by the amount of that substance, measured in g/mol.
 The characteristic molar mass of an element is simply the atomic mass in g/mol.
 However, molar mass can also be calculated by multiplying the atomic mass in amu by the molar mass constant (1 g/mol).
 To calculate the molar mass of a compound with multiple atoms, sum all the atomic mass of the constituent atoms.

 Masstomole conversions can be facilitated by employing the molar mass as a conversion ratio.
 From the relative atomic mass of each element, it is possible to determine each element's molar mass by multiplying the molar mass constant (1 g/mol) by the atomic weight of that particular element.
 The molar mass value can be used as a conversion factor to facilitate masstomole and moletomass conversions.
 The compound's molar mass is necessary when converting from grams to moles.
 After the molar mass is determined, dimensional analysis can be used to convert from grams to moles.

 If the amount of solute is given in grams, we must first calculate the number of moles of solute using the solute's molar mass, then calculate the molarity using the number of moles and total volume.
 First, we must convert the mass of NaCl in grams into moles.
 We can also calculate the volume required to meet a specific mass in grams given the molarity of the solution.
 This is useful with particular solutes that cannot be easily massed with a balance.
 First we must convert grams of BH3 to moles by dividing the mass by the molecular weight.

 Unlike molarity, which depends on the volume of the solution, molality depends only on the mass of the solvent.
 Since volume is subject to variation due to temperature and pressure, molarity also varies by temperature and pressure.
 Molality is based on mass, so it can easily be converted into a mass ratio, denoted by w:
 Compared to molar concentration or mass concentration, the preparation of a solution of a given molality is easy because it requires only a good scale; both solvent and solute are massed, rather than measured by volume.
 In this lesson, you will learn how molarity and molality differ.

 In chemistry, molar concentration, or molarity, is defined as moles of solute per total liters of solution.
 The SI unit for molarity is is mol/m3; however, you will almost always encounter molarity with the units of mol/L.
 This video demonstrates practice problems with molarity, calculating the moles and liters to find the molar concentration.
 Use molarity to convert between mass and volume in a solution.
 This video looks at how to use molarity as a conversion factor.

 Therefore, for a masstomass conversion, it is necessary to first convert one amount to moles, then use the conversion factor to find moles of the other substance, and then convert the molar value of interest back to mass.
 Taking coefficients from the reaction equation (13 O2 and 2 C4H10), the molar ratio of O2 to C4H10 is 13:2.
 The molar amount of O2 can now be easily converted back to grams of oxygen:
 But by converting the butane mass to moles (0.929 moles) and using the molar ratio (13 moles oxygen : 2 moles butane), one can find the molar amount of oxygen (6.05 moles) that reacts with 54.0 grams of butane.
 Using the molar amount of oxygen, it is then possible to find the mass of the oxygen (193 g).

 Heat capacity is an extensive property, meaning that it is dependent upon the size/mass of the sample.
 Given the molar heat capacity or the specific heat for a pure substance, it is possible to calculate the amount of heat required to raise/lower that substance's temperature by a given amount.
 In these equations, m is the substance's mass in grams (used when calculating with specific heat), and n is the number of moles of substance (used when calculating with molar heat capacity).
 We are given the molar heat capacity of water, so we need to convert the given mass of water to moles:
 It discusses how the amount of heat needed for a temperature change is dependent on mass and the substance involved, and that relationship is represented by the specific heat capacity of the substance, C.

 Molar ratios, or conversion factors, identify the number of moles of each reactant needed to form a certain number of moles of each product.
 Because the law of conservation of mass dictates that the quantity of each element must remain unchanged over the course of a chemical reaction, each side of a balanced chemical equation must have the same quantity of each particular element.
 From this reaction equation, it is possible to deduce the following molar ratios:
 These molar ratios will be very important for quantitative chemistry calculations that will be discussed in later concepts.
 Determine the molar ratio between two substances given their balanced reaction.
