# Imidazole [C3N2H4] Molecular Weight Calculation

The molecular weight of Imidazole (C3N2H4) is 68.07758.

Imidazole (C3N2H4) is an organic compound of three elements: Carbon, Nitrogen, and Hydrogen. The molecular weight of Imidazole is 68.07758 which can be calculated by adding up the total weight (atomic weight multiplied by their number) of all its elements.

# CALCULATION PROCEDURE: Imidazole  [C3N2H4] Molecular Weight Calculation

Step 1: Find out the chemical formula and determine constituent atoms and their number in an Imidazole molecule.
You will know different atoms and their number in an Imidazole molecule from the chemical formula. The chemical formula of Imidazole is C3N2H4. From the chemical formula, you can find that one molecule of Imidazole consists of three Carbon (C) atoms, four Hydrogen (H) atoms, two Nitrogen (N) atom, and one Sulfur atom.

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): 28.01348 (Ref: Jlab-ele007)

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

Number of Carbon atoms in Imidazole: 3
Atomic weight of Carbon (C): 12.0107
Total weight of Carbon atoms in Imidazole: 12.0107 x 3 = 36.0321

Number of Nitrogen atoms in Imidazole: 2
Atomic weight of Nitrogen (N): 28.01348
Total weight of Nitrogen atoms in Imidazole: 28.01348 x 2 = 28.01348

Number of Hydrogen atoms in Imidazole: 4
Atomic weight of Hydrogen (H): 1.008
Total weight of Hydrogen atoms in Imidazole: 1.008 x 4 = 4.032

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

Molecular weight of Imidazole: 36.0321 (Carbon) + 28.01348 (Nitrogen) + 4.032 (Hydrogen) = 68.07758

So the molecular weight of Imidazole is 68.07758.
