The human body is said to contain approximately 50.0 grams of DNA in the entire body. If the number of nucleotides in ONE STRAND of DNA is approximately 3.0 x 106, and the average molar mass of a nucleotide is 327 g/mol, what is the average molar mass of an entire DNA double helix?

C5H10O4 + 4 C5H5N2O2 + 4 C5H5N5 + 3 C5H5N5O + 3 C4H5N3O + 12 H3PO4 → C137H178O106N52P12 + 12 H2O + 12 H2
d-ribose thymine adenine guanine cytosine 14 nucleotide DNA
double helix
