SrF2 (Strontium fluoride) Molar Mass (With Calculations)

SrF2 (Strontium fluoride) Molar Mass

Molar mass of SrF2 (Strontium fluoride) is 125.616 g/mol.

Well, now you have come to know the molar mass of SrF2.

But how can you get this value?

Let me show you the calculation to get the molar mass of SrF2 (Strontium fluoride).

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

SrF2 (Strontium fluoride) Molar Mass Calculation

If you have a periodic table with you, then you can easily calculate the molar mass of SrF2 (Strontium fluoride).

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 SrF2 (Strontium fluoride).

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 SrF2, there is 1 Strontium atom and 2 Fluorine atoms.

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

You can see that;

The molar mass of Strontium is 87.62 g/mol. [1]

The molar mass of Fluorine is 18.998 g/mol. [2]

Now, to calculate the molar mass of SrF2, you just have to add the molar mass of all the individual atoms that are present in SrF2.

You can see that in SrF2, there is 1 Strontium atom and 2 Fluorine atoms.

So, Molar mass of SrF2 = Molar mass of 1 Strontium (Sr) atom + Molar mass of 2 Fluorine (F) atoms.
= 87.62 + (18.998) 2
= 87.62 + 37.996
= 125.616 g/mol

Hence the Molar mass of SrF2 is 125.616 g/mol.

I hope you have understood the short and simple calculation for finding the molar mass of SrF2.

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.
