Lesson 11

## How do you calculate grams to moles?

Wednesday, June 15, 2016 5:29 PM

• Atomic Weight / atomic mass

○ Decimal number on the periodic table

○ Weighted average of all the isotopes

○ We use it as grams

○ Weight and/or mass of one atom

• Mole

○ Describes an amount of substance/compound

○ Mole is the SI unit used to represent 6.022 x 10^23 particles

○ 6.022 x 10^23 = Avogadro's number

○ 1 mole of an atom - the weight (atomic mass) in grams

○ 1 mole of Cu = 63.54 grams

▪ 1 mole of Cu = 6.022 x 10^23 atoms of Cu

○ 1 mole of O = 15.9994 grams

## How do you find the number of atoms in a molecule?

▪ 1 mole of O = 6.022 x 10^23 atoms of O

○ Molecular weight is used for molecules

○ Atomic weight is used for atoms

• Formula / molecular weights

○ Formula weight (FW) = ionic compounds

○ Molecular Weight (MW) = covalent compounds

○ Calculation

▪ The atomic weights of all the atoms present in the compound

• Calculations of grams, moles, molecules, and atoms

▪ You will ALWAYS multiply Don't forget about the age old question of What is the resonance condition in nmr spectroscopy?

▪ To get to grams:

□ Multiply by the molecular weight of the compound or molecule

## What does a subscript tell you about the molecule?

▪ To get to the number of molecules or atoms:

□ Multiply by Avogadro's number (6.022 x 10^23)

▪ To get to moles:

□ DIVIDE by the molecular weight

▪ To get to the number of molecules or atoms:

11 Pae 10

▪ To get to the number of molecules or atoms:

□ Divide by the molecular weight

□ Then multiply by Avogadro's number

▪ To get to moles:

▪ To get to grams:

□ Then multiply by the molecular weight We also discuss several other topics like What family patterns do we see across cultures and specifically in the us?

○ To find the number of atoms in a molecule

▪ Multiply the number of molecules by the subscript of the atom you are trying to find

• Percent Composition

○ (Mass of the element / mass of the compound ) x100
