Solution :

The formula weight of glucose (C6H12O6) is calculated as follows

**Glucose contains 6 atoms of carbon , 12 atoms of hydrogen and 6 atoms of Oxygen.**

formula weight = 6*Molecular mass of carbon + 12 * molecular mass of hydrogen +6*molecular mass of oxygen

= 6*12 +12*1+6*16

= 72 +12+96

= 180 grams

**Hence Molecular weight of glucose is 180gms**

Hope This helps You!!!
