Calculate the molar mass of acetone?

Answer:

Relative molar mass is defined as the smallest mass unit of a compound with one twelfth of the mass of one carbon – 12 atom. The molar mass of the compound can be calculated using the formula

Molar mass = mass/mole (g/mol)

Chemical Formula of the Acetone is CH3COCH3

Let us calculate the mass of the compound

Mass of the Carbon (C) = 12 g
Mass of the Hydrogen (H) = 1 g
Mass of the Oxygen (O) = 16 g

Molecular mass of the acetone = 12 + 1 × 3 + 12 + 16 + 12 + 1 × 3
Molecular mass of theCH3COCH3 = 12 + 3 + 12 + 16 + 12 + 3
Molecular mass of theCH3COCH3 = 36 + 6 + 16
Molecular mass of theCH3COCH3 = 58 g/mole
