# Silver Oxide [Ag2O] Molecular Weight Calculation

The molecular weight of Silver oxide [Ag2O] is 231.7358.

Silver oxide [Ag2O] is an inorganic compound of two elements: Silver and Oxygen. The molecular weight of Silver oxide is 231.7358 which can be calculated by adding up the total weight (atomic weight multiplied by their number) of Silver and oxygen.

CALCULATION PROCEDURE: Silver oxide [Ag2O] Molecular Weight Calculation

Step 1: Find out the chemical formula and determine constituent atoms and their number in a Silver oxide molecule.
From the chemical formula, you will know different atoms and their number in a Silver oxide molecule. The chemical formula of Silver oxide is Ag2O. From the chemical formula, you can find that one molecule of Silver oxide has two Silver (Ag) atoms and one Oxygen (O) atom.

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 Oxygen (O): 15.9994 (Ref: Jlab-ele008)

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

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

Number of Oxygen atoms in Silver oxide: 1
Atomic weight of Oxygen (O): 15.9994
Total weight of Oxygen atoms in Silver oxide: 15.9994 x 1 = 15.9994

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

Molecular weight of Silver oxide [Ag2O]: 215.7364 (Silver) + 15.9994 (Oxygen) = 231.7358

So the molecular weight of Silver oxide is 231.7358.
