What is the molar mass of NaCl (table salt)?

Sodium chloride is an ionic compound in which the sodium and chloride ions are in the ratio of 1:1. It is commonly called table salt, common salt or halite (the mineral form of common salt).It is a crystalline solid, white. In its aqueous form, it is called a saline solution.

Molar Mass

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

the molar masses of sodium and chlorine, respectively, are

Na =22.989770 g/mol
Cl =35.453 g/mol

Therefore, the molar mass of sodium chlorideis

22.989770 g/mol +35.453 g/mol = 58.44277 g/mol

Answer

The molar mass of sodium chloride is 58.44277 g/ mol
