Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Wiped Out on Friday, September 14, 2012 at 9:45pm.

A solution was made by dissolving 5.15 mg of hemoglobin in water to give final volume of 1.00 mL. The osmotic pressure of this solution was 1.97 x 10^-3 atm at 25C. Calculate the molar mass of hemoglobin.

pi = iMRT
i = 1 since hemoglobin is nonelectrolyte and doesn't dissociate
T = 298 K
R = constant = .08206 L atm/mol K

1 mL => .00100 L
5.15 mg => .00515 g

I was told that the answer is supposed to be a big number like 64,000. I dont understand how that works. Can someone help me get the right answer?
