Abstract: In a recent paper by the author the normset and its multiplicative structure was studied. In that paper it was shown that under certain conditions (including Galois) that a normset has unique factorization if and only if its corresponding ring of integers has unique factorization. In this paper we shall examine some of the properties of a normset and describe what it says about the class group of the corresponding ring of integers.
