# Silver Carbonate (Ag2CO3) Molecular Weight Calculation

The molecular weight of Silver carbonate [Ag2CO3] is 275.7453. Silver carbonate [Ag2CO3] is an inorganic compound of three elements: Silver, Carbon, and Oxygen. The molecular weight of Silver carbonate is 275.7453 which can be calculated by adding up the total weight (atomic weight multiplied by their number) of Silver, Carbon, and oxygen.

CALCULATION PROCEDURE: Silver carbonate [Ag2CO3] Molecular Weight Calculation

Step 1: Find out the chemical formula and determine constituent atoms and their number in a Silver carbonate molecule.
From the chemical formula, you will know different atoms and their number in a Silver carbonate molecule. The chemical formula of Silver carbonate is Ag2CO3. From the chemical formula, you can find that one molecule of Silver carbonate has two Silver (Ag) atoms, one Carbon (C) atom, and three Oxygen (O) atoms.

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

Atomic weight of Silver (Ag): 107.8682 (Ref: Jlab-ele047, ciaaw-silver)
Atomic
weight of Carbon (C): 12.0107 (Ref: Jlab-ele006)
Atomic weight of Oxygen (O): 15.9994 (Ref: Jlab-ele008)

Step 3: Calculate the molecular weight of Silver carbonate by adding the total weight of all atoms.

Number of Silver atoms in Silver carbonate: 2
Atomic weight of Silver: 107.8682
Total weight of Silver atoms in Silver carbonate: 107.8682 x 2 = 215.7364

Number of Carbon atoms in Silver carbonate: 1
Atomic weight of Carbon: 12.0107
Total weight of Carbon atoms in Silver carbonate: 12.0107 x 1 = 12.0107

Number of Oxygen atoms in Silver carbonate: 3
Atomic weight of Oxygen (O): 15.9994
Total weight of Oxygen atoms in Silver carbonate: 15.9994 x 3 = 47.9982

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

Molecular weight of Silver carbonate (Ag2CO3): 215.7364 (Silver) + 12.0107 (Carbon) + 47.9982 (Oxygen) = 275.7453

So the molecular weight of Silver carbonate is 275.7453.
