# Silver Phosphate [Ag3PO4] Molecular Weight Calculation

The molecular weight of Silver phosphate [Ag3PO4] is 418.575961998. Silver phosphate [Ag3PO4] is an inorganic compound of three elements: Silver, Phosphorus, and Oxygen. The molecular weight of Silver phosphate is 418.575961998 which can be calculated by adding up the total weight (atomic weight multiplied by their number) of Silver, Phosphorus, and oxygen.

CALCULATION PROCEDURE: Silver phosphate [Ag3PO4] Molecular Weight Calculation

Step 1: Find out the chemical formula and determine constituent atoms and their number in a Silver phosphate molecule.
From the chemical formula, you will know different atoms and their number in a Silver phosphate molecule. The chemical formula of Silver phosphate is Ag3PO4. From the chemical formula, you can find that one molecule of Silver phosphate has three Silver (Ag) atoms, one Phosphorus (P) atom, and four 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 Phosphorus (P): 30.973761998 (Ref: Jlab-ele024, ciaaw-Phosphorus, Nist-24)
Atomic weight of Oxygen (O): 15.9994 (Ref: Jlab-ele008)

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

Number of Silver atoms in Silver phosphate: 3
Atomic weight of Silver: 107.8682
Total weight of Silver atoms in Silver phosphate: 107.8682 x 3 = 323.6046

Number of Phosphorus atoms in Silver phosphate: 1
Atomic weight of Phosphorus: 30.973761998
Total weight of Phosphorus atoms in Silver phosphate: 30.973761998 x 1 = 30.973761998

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

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

Molecular weight of Silver phosphate [Ag3PO4]: 323.6046 (Silver) + 30.973761998 (Phosphorus) + 63.9976 (Oxygen) = 418.575961998

So the molecular weight of Silver phosphate is 418.575961998.
