In this short communication, two methods were shown for evaluating the homo-polymer number-average molecular weight (MWN), weight-average molecular weight (MWW), and poly dispersity index (PDI). The goal is to exemplify the cumbersome mathematical portray which heavily relies on the zeroth, first, and second moment frequency distribution of homo-polymer chains in a typical chain reaction and transform the portray into a more simplified version that simply relies on statistical parameters, namely, the mean and variance of a sample.
