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?
The compound's name is glycerolYou 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 apparant to you.
No. Content of parentheses is to be taken as many times, as number after the closing parenthese tells. No number - no multiplication.Do i have to multiply the molar mass inside the bracket (HOCH2CHOH) by the outside CH2O2?
