Step 1

The number of water molecules present inside a crystal is known as water of crystallization.

The salts in which the compound is attached to some water of crystallization are known as hydrated salts. For example, copper sulphate is a hydrated salt having 5 molecules of water of crystallization which is written as CuSO4.5H2O.

On the other hand, salts which loses their water of crystallization on heating are known as anhydrous salts. For example, Barium chloride

Step 2

Atomic mass of anhydrous barium chloride = 208.23 g/mol.

Atomic mass of hydrogen = 1.008 u

Atomic mass of oxygen = 15.999 u

Therefore, sum of atomic masses of water that is 2H2O and 2H2O respectively will be calculated as follows: help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose2H,O 2(1.008x2+15.999) g.mol - 2(2.0 16+15.999) g.mol - 2(18.015) g.mol 36.03 g.mol 3H O 3(1.008 2+15.999) g.mol =3(2.016+15.999) g.mol 3(18.015) g.mol 54.045 g.mol 54.05 g.mol fullscreen
