What Is The Mass Of One Mole Of Carbon Dioxide, CO2?

Carbon dioxide is an inorganic compound. The molecular formula for carbon dioxide is CO2. One atom of carbon and two atoms of oxygen are present in one molecule of carbon dioxide gas. Carbon dioxide is produced when an organic compound is burnt in the presence of oxygen. Carbon dioxide is used during the reaction of photosynthesis. Plants use CO2 and water in the presence of sunlight to yield oxygen gas and complex molecules for example, glucose.

The mass of one mole of a substance is called molar mass of the substance. The molar mass of carbon dioxide is 44 grams per mole. It can be calculated as;

Molar mass of CO2 = 12 + 2*16

Molar mass of CO2= 12 + 32 = 44

The mass of one mole of any substance is known as its molar mass. If the molecular mass of a substance is expressed in grams, it is known as its molar mass. The molecular formula of carbon dioxide is CO2. The molecular mass of carbon dioxide can be calculated as;

Molecular mass of CO2 = Mass of carbon + 2*mass of Oxygen

Mass of carbon = 12

Mass of oxygen = 16

Molecular mass of CO2 = 12 + 2*16

Molecular mass of CO2 = 44

So, the mass of one mole of carbon dioxide is 44 grams.
