How many Li₂SO₄ units are in 3 moles of Li₂SO₄?

7+32+16*4= 103

3moles x 6.02 x 10²³ x 1/1= 1.81 x 10²⁴

3moles x 6.02 x 10²³ x 1/1= 1.81 x 10²⁴

How many Li atoms are in 3 moles of Li₂SO₄?

3 moles x 6.02 x 10²³ x 2/1= 3.61 x 10²⁴

Analysis of a solution shows it contains 0.909 mol of H2O2 in 1.00L of solution. What is the mass of hydrogen peroxide in this volume of solution?

molar mass of H2O2 is 34.02 g/mol

molar mass of H2O2 is 34.02 g/mol

.909 mol * 34.02 g H₂O₂/1 ml H₂O₂= 30.92g

HCN is a volatile colorless liquid. The compound is highly poisonous . How many molecules are there in 56mg HCN, the average toxic does?

Convert

56mg -->grams x 1000 56000

56000/mass-->56000/27.02

multiply by avogardo

56000/27.02 * 6.022 x 10²³

1.2 x 10²³

56mg -->grams x 1000 56000

56000/mass-->56000/27.02

multiply by avogardo

56000/27.02 * 6.022 x 10²³

1.2 x 10²³

The molecular mass of NH4NO3 = 80.05; its molar mass = 80.05g/mol.

Hence

Hence

N= 28.02/ total

28.02/80.05= .35 x 100%= 35%

28.02/80.05= .35 x 100%= 35%

How many grams of nitrogen are there in a fertilizer containing 48.5g of NH4NO3?

NH4NO3 is 35.0% N

(Fraction N = 0.350

48.5 x .35= 16.975= 17.0 g

(Fraction N = 0.350

48.5 x .35= 16.975= 17.0 g

Empirical Formula

Determined from data about percent composition, tells only the smallest whole number ratio of atoms in a compound.

Molecular Formula

n= molecular mass/empirical formula mass

C₂H₄O= 44amu

divide by actual mass, 44 amu = 1

C₂H₄O= 44amu

divide by actual mass, 44 amu = 1
