Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Q1: Suppose the question would be for 1 molecule can you calculate the # H atoms? Q2: Do you know how many atoms are in 1 mol? Q3: Can you convert from grams to moles?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'll try to help, but I can't replace a whole class in these short posts. I'll reference each post with Q1, Q2, Q3 when replying please do the same. For Q1: \[CH _{3}CH _{2}COOH\] Let's start with something simpler. Do you know how many H's (hydrogen's are in \[H _{2}O\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So how many H atoms are in CH3CH2COOH?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. This though, is just for one molecule, it needs to be multiplied by the # of molecules in the example.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Q2: Look in you textbook or google, how many atoms are in a mole or look / search for Avogadro's numv\ber. A mol btw is is just a quantity number, just like a dozen is just the number 12. A dozen eggs and a dozen doughnuts, both mean that you have 12. The mol is same thing.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Re: Q2 You are correct. I'm blacking out for a moment. I think 1 mol of H3PO4 would be (since there are 3 H's) 3*6.022*10^23. Since there are 4.54 mol it should be (3)(4.54)(6.022)*10^23. Can someone verify that this is correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Re: Q3. You need to convert from grams to moles and do the same as you did for Q2. Do you know how to convert from grams to moles?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. In short it's called dimensional analysis KhanAcademy.org has good videos on it and practice skills. You need to start with whats given, in this case 30 g C6H5ONH. Then set up your equation so that grams cancel each other out and you are left with moles. You need to calculate the molar mass, also know as g/mol, or grams per mole of C6H5ONH and plug the gram value in the denominator (where grams is written). The molar masses are on the periodic table \[30gram C6H5ONH * \frac{1 mole }{grams }\] Following this equation will give you the # of moles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.030/108.10 is .27750

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It looks correct. I only used 2 sig figs so I got 108. 0.27750 is the # of moles. Find out if your professor / teacher is pick with significant figures. If yes, then since 30 is 2 sig figs you need to round to 0.28. Did what I post regarding the 2nd question make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.030(14)(6.022 x 10^23) / 0.28 = 9.03e+26

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure why your using 30(14). In C6H5ONH there are 6 H's. So I think we have: For 1 mole: 6(6.022)x10^23 Since there are 0.28 mol 0.28(6)(6.022)x10^23. My brain has overtrained tonight and I may be making a mistake.
