Ag2O (Silver oxide) Molar Mass (With Calculations)

Ag2O (Silver oxide) Molar Mass

Molar mass of Ag2O (Silver oxide) is 231.739 g/mol.

Well, now you have come to know the molar mass of Ag2O.

But how can you get this value?

Let me show you the calculation to get the molar mass of Ag2O (Silver oxide).

You can also refer to this one minute video which will show you the simple steps to calculate the molar mass of any compounds.

Ag2O (Silver oxide) Molar Mass Calculation

If you have a periodic table with you, then you can easily calculate the molar mass of Ag2O (Silver oxide).

Because the molar mass of any molecule (or compound) can be calculated by simply adding the molar masses of individual atoms.

Now here we have to find the molar mass of Ag2O (Silver oxide).

So for that, have a look at the periodic table given below.

You can see the molar mass value of all the atoms from this periodic table.

Now in Ag2O, there are 2 Silver atoms and 1 Oxygen atom.

So let’s look at the molar mass of Silver and Oxygen from the above periodic table.

You can see that;

The molar mass of Silver is 107.87 g/mol. [1]

The molar mass of Oxygen is 15.999 g/mol. [2]

Now, to calculate the molar mass of Ag2O, you just have to add the molar mass of all the individual atoms that are present in Ag2O.

You can see that in Ag2O, there are 2 Silver atoms and 1 Oxygen atom.

So, Molar mass of Ag2O = Molar mass of 2 Silver (Ag) atoms + Molar mass of 1 Oxygen (O) atom.
= (107.87) 2 + 15.999
= 215.74 + 15.999
= 231.739 g/mol

Hence the Molar mass of Ag2O is 231.739 g/mol.

I hope you have understood the short and simple calculation for finding the molar mass of Ag2O.


  • In some books, you may see the unit of molar mass as grams/mole or g/mole. But all these units (i.e g/mol, grams/mole and g/mole) are the same. 
  • Always follow the calculation order to avoid any mistakes in calculation. First solve the brackets, then multiplications and at last do the final addition.
  • And don’t forget to put the unit g/mol to your final calculated molar mass.
