Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0amu=atomic mass. atomic mass is in grams therefore amu=grams

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Example: if p=4n and you want to figure out how many n are in 5p, then you would multiply 5*4n=20n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1441070485841:dw When multiply conversion makes the sure the denominator is equal to the numerator. You would cancel the units you are given to find the new amount of the new unit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what numbers would you put where? Would the 123 amu go first as 5p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay I read what you said again and I think I got it? I put 123 amu x (1g/ 1 amu) x ( 1000kg/ 1g) =123000
