What is the molar mass of sulfuric acid H2SO4?

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

Calculation of Molar mass of a compound

We can find the molecular mass of the molecule by following the given substance:

  • Identify the formula of the compound or molecule
  • Using the formula determine the number of atoms present in each element of the compound or molecule
  • Multiply the atomic weight of each element with the number of atoms of that particular element
  • Similarly, do it for all the elements in the molecule or compound
  • Add up all the values obtained in the above step
  • Then add the unit as grams/mole you will get the molecular mass of the substance

Molar mass of H2SO4

Look for the atomic masses of hydrogen, sulfur and oxygen.

H = 1.008

S = 32.06

O = 16

Therefore, the molar mass of H2SO4 is

=2(1.008) + 32.06 + 4(16)

=98.08 g/mol

Answer

Hence, molar mass of H2SO4is98.08 g/mol.
