Yeah we do not need to memorize the molar masses of each element, however, as we progress in this course it will be helpful to know the molar masses for some of the more basic elements such as H, O, C, etc. This will save time during tests and quizzes.
Molar masses of elements are listed below the names of the elements on the periodic table and they are often decimals because they describe the average mass of an element with respect to the element's isotopes (varying masses because of the varying numbers of neutrons) and how often those isotopes appear in nature. To find the molar mass of a molecule, you multiply each element in the molecule by the number of atoms of that element in the molecule separately, and then add up the component parts.
