Dear Student
     Molecular mass means mass of a molecule: kg/molecule.
  Gram molecular mass also known as molar mass is in the units of kg/mole or kg/Avogadro no of molecules .
 example: Molecular mass of CH4 is (16/6.022*10^23)gram but its molar mass is 16gram or 1.6*10^-2 kg.
   
We hope that clarifies your query.
