Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The answers are to be given for the given options.

Concept introduction: The atomic mass is defined as the sum of number of protons and number of neutrons.

Molar mass of a substance is defined as the mass of the substance in gram of one mole of that compound.

The molar mass of any compound can be calculated by adding of atomic weight of individual atoms present in it.

The amount of substance containing 12g of pure carbon is called a mole. One mole of atoms always contains 6.022×1023 molecules. The number of molecules in one mole is also called Avogadro’s number.

Explanation

To determine: The molar mass of Dimethylnitrosamine [(CH3)2N2O] .

The atomic weight of carbon (C) is 12.01g/mol .

The atomic weight of oxygen (O) is 16.00g/mol .

The atomic weight of hydrogen (H) is 1.008g/mol .

The atomic weight of nitrogen (N) is 14.01g/mol .

In a compound (CH3)2N2O , two carbon, one oxygen, two nitrogen and six hydrogen atoms are present. Hence, molar mass of (CH3)2N2O is calculated as,
