Expert Answer:

C. molecular weight divided by atomicity, all divided by the valence.

The equivalent weight of a compound can be calculated by dividing the molecular weight by the number of positive or negative electrical charges that result from the dissolution of the compound.

To calculate equivalent weight,

Find out:

1. Molecular weight of a compound.

2. Then calculate the valency of the compound.

3. Divide the molecular weight by the valency, so that the equivalent weight can be calculated.
