Molar mass of Calcium hydride is 42.094 g/mol.
Well, now you have come to know the molar mass of Calcium hydride.
But how can you get this value?
Let me show you the calculation to get the molar mass of Calcium hydride (CaH2).
You can also refer to this one minute video which will show you the simple steps to calculate the molar mass of any compounds.
Calcium hydride Molar Mass Calculation
If you have a periodic table with you, then you can easily calculate the molar mass of Calcium hydride (CaH2).
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 Calcium hydride (CaH2).
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 Calcium hydride (CaH2), there is 1 Calcium atom and 2 Hydrogen atoms.
So let’s look at the molar mass of Calcium and Hydrogen from the above periodic table.
You can see that;
The molar mass of Calcium is 40.078 g/mol. 
The molar mass of Hydrogen is 1.008 g/mol. 
Now, to calculate the molar mass of Calcium hydride, you just have to add the molar mass of all the individual atoms that are present in Calcium hydride.
You can see that in Calcium hydride (CaH2), there is 1 Calcium atom and 2 Hydrogen atoms.
So, Molar mass of Calcium hydride (CaH2) = Molar mass of 1 Calcium (Ca) atom + Molar mass of 2 Hydrogen (H) atoms.
= 40.078 + (1.008) 2
= 40.078 + 2.016
= 42.094 g/mol
Hence the Molar mass of Calcium hydride is 42.094 g/mol.
I hope you have understood the short and simple calculation for finding the molar mass of Calcium hydride.
- 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.
