Formula weight of a molecule

The summation of the atomic weights of all atoms In the chemical formula of the molecule.
Note: Formula weight calculated by this way is also known as "Molecular Formula Weight" or "Molecular Weight"

Question: Calculate the formula weight of HClO4
11.01H

1735.5Cl

816O

Solution: Molecular Weight = (1 × 1) + (1 × 35.5) + (4 × 16) = 100.5 amu

Example: Calculate the % N in NH4NO3

816O

11.01H

714N

% N = (((# of atoms of the element) × (atomic weight of the element))/ (Formula weight of the compound))) × 100 =
= (2 × 14) / ((1 × 14) + (4 × 1) + (1 × 14) + (3 × 16)) = 35; which means that NH4NO3 contains 35% of N.
