What do you mean? what 1 amu is in gram? That's \(\large\sf 1.66053892 × 10^{24}\) gram

@thomaster what is 1 amu in gram?  this is what i meant now, how did you get 1.66 x 10^24 gram? i need the solution too. if you may

It is just a constant, you can't calculate it. A long time ago they decided to take the mass of carbon12 and divide that by 12 to get 1 amu.

HERE IS THE SOL'n

thomaster Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
that's the relationship between the amu mass and avogadro's number Avogadro's number is the amount of particles in 1 mole of a compound. Like it says in your book, 1 gram is avogadro's number in amu You could solve this with a crosstable dw:1372679331655:dw

@thomaster wait a minute. i'm mixed up how's you get 1.66x10^24? when we're supposed to find how many grams is in 1 amu?

@thomaster if the answer is 1.66x10^24; then how did you get 1.66x10^24 as your solution variable?

thomaster Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
1 divided by avogadro's number = 1.66*10^24

thomaster Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
because 6.022*10^23 amu = 1 gram

It's explained here: dw:1372682633203:dw

thomaster Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
since 1*1 = 1 that's where the 1 comes from
