169.874 grams/mole

the molar mass M is a physical property defined as the mass of a given substance (chemical element or chemical compound) divided by the amount of substance. The base SI unit for molar mass is kg/mol. However, for historical reasons, molar masses are almost always expressed in g/mol.

In simple terms, molar mass of a substance is the total weight of that substance (in either kilogram or gram) for one mole of that substance. That is, the weight of a substance for 6.02214076×1023 molecules or atoms of that substance.

Example 1

Sulfuric acid's molar mass is 98.08 g/mol.

MM= (1.01×2)+32.06+(16×4)

= 98.08 g/mol

Example 2

The molar mass of a chemical is the molecular mass of the chemical in grams.

i.e. 1 mole = (molecular mass) grams of the chemical.

Formula for silver nitrate = AgNO3

This gives the molar mass as

(107.87+14.007+(3⋅15.999))=169.874 grams/mole
