# What is the molar mass of hemoglobin?

Hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells, has four iron atoms per molecule and contains 0.340% percent iron by mass. Calculate the molar mass of hemoglobin.

Update:

Thank you so much Ronald!

Relevance

(4xFe atomic mass) / molar mass of hemoglobin = 0.340%

223.4 / molar mass of hemoglobin = 0.0034

molar mass of hemoglobin = 65706 (65,700)

assume 100 g of hemoglobin mass Fe = 0.347 g moles Fe = 0.347 g / 55.847 g/mol=0.00621 moles hemoglobin = 0.00621/4=0.00155 molar mass = 100 g / 0.00155 mol=6.44 x 10^4 g/mol
