Cinnabar (HgS) is a prominent ore of mercury. How many grams of mercury are present in 225 g of pure HgS? Molar mass of Hg and S are
200.6 g mol–1 and 32 g mol–1 respectively.
Molar mass of HgS = The molar mass of Hg + the molar mass of S
= 200.6 + 32 = 232.6 g mol–1
1molecule of HgS contains 1 atom of Hg
232.6 g of HgS contains 200.6 g of Hg
Therefore, Mass of Hg in 225 g of HgS =
