## anonymous one year ago How many moles of H2O are in 42.0 g H2O? 2.33 mol H2O 5.25 mol H2O 6.00 mol H2O 7.56 mol H2O

$42.0g x (1mol H2O/18g) = 2.3 mol H2O$

The reason for this is that simply that you need to just set up your fraction, 1 mol contains 18.0 grams of water. and then multiply by the number of grams.

4. Photon336

if you notice grams cancel out and you're left with moles in the numerator. $Grams \frac{ mol }{ grams }$

5. Photon336

$Grams \times \frac{ 1 }{ grams } = \frac{ Grams }{ Grams } = 1$ This is why the units cancel out

As mentioned the best way to set work this problem is to set up a table and cancel until you get what you want. Remember to go to moles from grams, divide by molar mass and to go from moles from grams multiply by molar mass.
