What is the molar mass of carbon tetrachloride?

Carbon tetrachloride, also known as tetrachloromethane, is an organic compound with the chemical formula CCl4.

Molar mass

The total sum of the masses of the atoms or elements present in the molecule is termed as molecular mass.

To calculate the molar mass of a compound we need to add the mass of individual atoms present in the molecule.

Molar mass of Carbon tetrachloride

Carbon tetrachloride comprises of one carbon atom and four chlorine atoms.

The molar mass of carbon is 12.011 g/mol.

The molar mass of chlorine is 35.45 g/mol.

Hence molar mass of the whole molecule is

(1 X 12.011 g/mol) + ( 4 X 35.45 g/mol)

= 153.8g/mol

Answer

The molar mass of carbon tetrachloride is 153.81 grams per mole.
