Enter the molar mass (g/mol) and the density (g/L) into the Chemistry Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Chemistry Volume. 

Chemistry Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Chemistry Volume. 

Vchem = MM / D

  • Where Vchem is the Chemistry Volume (L)
  • MM is the molar mass (g/mol) 
  • D is the density (g/L) 

How to Calculate Chemistry Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Chemistry Volume.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the molar mass (g/mol). The molar mass (g/mol) is given as 25.00.
  2. Next, determine the density (g/L). The density (g/L) is provided as 4.
  3. Finally, calculate the Chemistry Volume using the equation above: 

Vchem = MM / D

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

Vchem = 25 / 4 = 6.25 (L)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

molar mass (g/mol) = 60

density (g/L) = 3

Entering these values and solving gives:

Vchem = 60 / 3 = 20 (L)
