# MgS (Magnesium sulfide) Molar Mass (With Calculations)

Molar mass of MgS (Magnesium sulfide) is 56.365 g/mol.

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

But how can you get this value?

Let me show you the calculation to get the molar mass of MgS (Magnesium sulfide).

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

## MgS (Magnesium sulfide) Molar Mass Calculation

If you have a periodic table with you, then you can easily calculate the molar mass of MgS (Magnesium sulfide).

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 MgS (Magnesium sulfide).

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 MgS, there is 1 Magnesium atom and 1 Sulfur atom.

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

You can see that;

The molar mass of Magnesium is 24.305 g/mol. [1]

The molar mass of Sulfur is 32.06 g/mol. [2]

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

You can see that in MgS, there is 1 Magnesium atom and 1 Sulfur atom.

So, Molar mass of MgS = Molar mass of 1 Magnesium (Mg) atom + Molar mass of 1 Sulfur (S) atom.
= 24.305 + 32.06
= 56.365 g/mol

Hence the Molar mass of MgS is 56.365 g/mol.

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

Remember

• 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.
