Molecular Weight Calculator
This is a useful little utility that calculates molecular weight of a formula entered via the keyboard.
The empirical formula entered is case-sensitive. In other words, you need to type "C2H5O" or "NaCl". After entering the complete formula, hit ENTER, and the result is displayed.
Note that you must CLEAR the previous data before entering a new formula. This can be done from the Edit menu or by typing clear on the command line, followed by ENTER.
