Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@TuringTest your solution is very straightforward and simple but I think there is more to this than that. This question came in a worksheet on mole concept.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just went by the wording of the question... they can't want molar mass since you can find just that on the PT, and it doesn't ask for number of moles. I have no other interpretation for the problem :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think the worg 'gram' might have been a printing error because if that word wasn't there, then they are asking us to find the weight of eight oxygen atoms. Also, 8 is a factor of 16(atomic mass of oxygen). Thanks for your help though.
