    7 water molecules in 1 molecule of epsomite, so 7 moles of water for 1 mole of epsomite.

    7*18 for the water 1*molar mass of mg 1*molar mass of s 4*molar mass of o look right?

    ok..so that's the number of molecules or should i multiply by Avogadro's nummber? or multiplying by Avogadro's no. will give me number of atoms?

    then you multiply by avogadro's number to get the number of molecules from the number of moles
