Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@thomaster so, how do you compute for the grams?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3What do you mean? what 1 amu is in gram? That's \(\large\sf 1.66053892 × 10^{24}\) gram

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3It 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@thomaster but how come my book has a derivation / solution of how to know how much is 1g in amu? see the attached picture below:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3that'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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@thomaster if the answer is 1.66x10^24; then how did you get 1.66x10^24 as your solution variable?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.31 divided by avogadro's number = 1.66*10^24

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3It's explained here: dw:1372682633203:dw

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