    (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
