  1. Find the Molecular formula for NaCl.


    Step 1 :  

    Given Molecular formula is NaCl. The two elements are Na and Cl.
    Atomic mass of Sodium = 22.98 grams/mole.
    Atomic mass of chlorine = 35.45 grams/mole.



    Step 2 :  

    Molecular weight of Sodium Chloride = No of atoms in the given molecule $\times$ Their Atomic mass.


                                                               = 1 $\times$ 22.98 + 1 $\times$ 35.45


                                                               = 58.43 grams/mole.



    Answer  :  

    $\therefore$ The Molecular weight of Sodium Chloride is 58.43 grams/mole.



  2. Find the Molecular formula forGlucose.


    Step 1 :  

    Given Comound is Glucose. Its chemical formula is CH2O. The elements given are C, H, O.
    Atomic mass of Carbon = 12.0107 grams/mole.
    Atomic mass of Hydrogen = 1.00794 grams/mole
    Atomic mass of Oxygen = 15.9994 grams/mole.



    Step 2 :  

    Molecular weight of Glucose = No of atoms in the given molecule $\times$ Their Atomic mass.


                                                 = 1 $\times$ 12.0107 + 2 $\times$ 1.00794 + 1 $\times$ 15.9994


                                                 = 30.02598 grams/mole.



    Answer  :  

    $\therefore$ The Molecular formula for Glucose is 30.02598 grams/mole.
