Hemoglobin, an oxygen-carrying protein in blood, contains 4 iron atoms per molecule and the iron comprises 0.34% of the molecules mass. What is the molecular weight of hemoglobin?


  • Chemistry -

    4*atomic mass Fe/molar mass hemoglobin = 0.0034
    Solve for molar mass hemoglobin.

  • Chemistry -

    Mol3cular weight= 56×4/0.34×100
