Butane molar mass (g/mole) in experiments: 0.23 g/0.0040 moles = 58 g/mole 13. Butane’s chemical formula is C4H10.
How do I calculate molecular mass?
Add the atomic masses of all the atoms in the molecule to get the molecular mass. Using the mass given in the Periodic Table, calculate the atomic mass of each element. To calculate the molecular mass, multiply the subscript (number of atoms) by the atomic mass of that element, then sum the masses of all the elements in the molecule. Multiply the subscript 12 times the atomic mass of carbon, for example (C). If you don’t already know the symbols for the elements, it’s a good idea to learn them.
What is gram molecular mass?
The molecular mass of a material is equal to its molecular weight or the sum of all the atomic masses in its molecular formula in grams. It is the molecular mass of a molecule expressed in grams.
Is butane a gas?
Butane is a highly flammable, colorless, odourless, and easily liquefied hydrocarbon. It is commonly used as a fuel for cigarette lighters and portable stoves, as well as a propellant in aerosols, a heating fuel, a refrigerant, and in the manufacturing of a variety of items. Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) also contains butane (LPG).
Hydrocarbons have been utilized to replace chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) as the propellant in most aerosols since 1987. Butane is a common propellant in home and industrial aerosols, therefore it can be found in a wide range of aerosol products. However, many aerosol goods’ packaging will list the propellant as ‘hydrocarbon,’ rather than directly mentioning butane.
