I'm having a lot of trouble trying to find the molar mass of (HOCH2CHOH)CH2O2
The Attempt at a Solution
Do i have to multiply the molar mass inside the bracket (HOCH2CHOH) by the outside CH2O2?
symbolipoint said:You are asking about how to find the mass of one mole of the compound. Maybe you have some difficulty with the text-based way to express the compound? What is the exact name of your compound? Maybe an empirical formula would make the method more apparent to you.

Molar mass is the mass of one mole of a substance, measured in grams per mole (g/mol).
To calculate molar mass, you need to determine the atomic masses of each element in the compound (found on the periodic table) and multiply it by the number of atoms present. Then, add up the masses of all the elements to get the molar mass.
The molar mass of (HOCH2CHOH)CH2O2 is 90.08 g/mol.
Molar mass is important in chemistry because it allows us to convert between the mass of a substance and the number of moles present. This is useful for performing calculations and determining the amount of a substance needed for a reaction.
Molar mass can affect the physical and chemical properties of a substance, such as boiling point, melting point, and reactivity. Molecules with higher molar mass tend to have stronger intermolecular forces, making them have higher boiling and melting points. Molar mass also plays a role in determining the density of a substance.
