1. What is the weight percentage of C in C6H12O6? use sig figs

The atomic weights of the elements are:

The molecular weight of Glucose is:

Te percentage of Carbon by weight in the Glucose molecule is:

2. What is the molar mass of TiCl4?

The molar mass of Titanium is 47.87 grams per mole. The molar mass of Chlorine is 35.45 grams per mole.
Thus, a molecule that contains one atom of Titanium and four atoms of Chlorine has a molar mass of:

3.what is the molarity of a 1.30 L solution containing 6.00g of NaCN? use sig figs

The molarity concentration is the number of moles of solute per volume of solvate.
The molar mass of sodium is
The molar mass of Carbon is
The molar mass of Nitrogen is
Thus, the molar mass of NaCN is:

This means that each mole of NaCN weigh 49.01 grams
Therefore, 6 grams of NaCN contain:

And the ...
