Bicine (C6H13NO4) is an organic compound of four elements: Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, and Oxygen. The molecular weight of Bicine is 163.17254 which can be calculated by adding up the total weight (atomic weight multiplied by their number) of all its elements.

# CALCULATION PROCEDURE: Bicine  [C6H13NO4] Molecular Weight Calculation

Step 1: Find out the chemical formula and determine constituent atoms and their number in a Bicine molecule.
You will know different atoms and their number in a Bicine molecule from the chemical formula. The chemical formula of Bicine is C6H13NO4. From the chemical formula, you can find that one molecule of Bicine consists of six Carbon (C) atoms, thirteen Hydrogen (H) atoms, one Nitrogen (N) atom, and four Oxygen (O) atoms.

Step 2: Find out the atomic weights of each atom (from the periodic table).

Atomic weight of Carbon (C): 12.0107 (Ref: Jlab-ele006)
Atomic weight of Hydrogen (H): 1.008 (Ref: Lanl-1)

Atomic weight of Nitrogen (N): 14.00674 (Ref: Jlab-ele007)
Atomic weight of Oxygen (O): 15.9994 (Ref: Jlab-ele008)

Step 3: Calculate the total weight of each atom in a Bicine molecule by multiplying its atomic weight by its number.

Number of Carbon atoms in Bicine: 6
Atomic weight of Carbon (C): 12.0107
Total weight of Carbon atoms in Bicine: 12.0107 x 6 = 72,0642

Number of Hydrogen atoms in Bicine: 13
Atomic weight of Hydrogen (H): 1.008
Total weight of Hydrogen atoms in Bicine: 1.008 x 13 = 13.104

Number of Nitrogen atoms in Bicine: 1
Atomic weight of Nitrogen (N): 14.00674
Total weight of Nitrogen atoms in Bicine: 14.00674 x 1 = 14.00674

Number of Oxygen atoms in Bicine: 4
Atomic weight of Oxygen (O): 15.9994
Total weight of Oxygen atoms in Bicine: 15.9994 x 4 = 63.9976

Step 4: Calculate the molecular weight of Bicine by adding up the total weight of all atoms.

Molecular weight of Bicine: 72,0642 (Carbon) + 13.104 (Hydrogen) + 14.00674 (Nitrogen) + 63.9976 (Oxygen) = 163.17254

So the molecular weight of Bicine is 163.17254.
