You can visit any of the number of web sites or use programs like PCGENE (or
OMIGA) for that. 
If you have one of those MolBio product catalogs, eg., NEB, you can look it
up from the appendices that have approximate values for such things.
Example: 334 amino acids sould have an approx. mol. mass of 37kDa
