    Answer (i) 1 mole of C2H6 contains 2 moles of carbon atoms. Number of moles of carbon atoms in 3 moles of C2H6 = 2 × 3 = 6 (ii) 1 mole of C2H6 contains 6 moles of hydrogen atoms. Number of moles of carbon atoms in 3 moles of C2H6 = 3 × 6 = 18 (iii) 1 mole of C2H6 contains 6.023 × 10^23 molecules of ethane. Number of molecules in 3 moles of C2H6 = 3 × 6.023 × 10^23 = 18.069 × 10^23

    its just as simple just multiply 3 as given in your question with the number of mole present in the formula of ethane

    does that mean whenever the qn is find the moles i should multiply the given atoms with the number of moles present ? EVERY TIME ?

    If you look Atom wise: Then there are two atoms of H and one atom of O Right ??

    So you can write it as : \(C_2H_6 + C_2H_6 + C_2H_6 = 3 C_2H_6\)
