## Question:

If the unknown copper salt a student worked with was copper (I) instead of a copper (II), would the calculated molar mass of the unknown salt change? Briefly explain.

## Molar Mass:

The summation of atomic masses of all existing atoms particularly in one mole of a given substance represents the molar mass. The atomic mass of a particular atom demonstrates the total of protons and neutrons (not electrons) number.
