Lesson 11 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 (atomicmass) in grams ○ 1 mole of Cu = 63.54 grams  1 mole of Cu = 6.022 x 10^23atoms of Cu ○ 1 mole of O = 15.9994grams  1 mole of O = 6.022 x 10^23atoms of O ○ Molecular weight is used for molecules ○ Atomic weight is used for atoms • Formula / molecularweights ○ Formula weight (FW) = ionic compounds ○ Molecular Weight (MW) = covalent compounds ○ Calculation  The atomic weights of all the atomspresent in the compound • Calculations of grams, moles, molecules,and atoms ○ If you start with moles:  You will ALWAYS multiply  To get to grams: □ Multiply by the molecular weight of the compound or molecule  To get to the number of moleculesor atoms: □ Multiply by Avogadro's number (6.022 x 10^23) ○ If you start with grams:  To get to moles: □ DIVIDE by the molecular weight  To get to the number of moleculesor atoms:  To get to the number of moleculesor atoms: □ Divide by the molecular weight □ Then multiply by Avogadro's number ○ If you start with the number of moleculesor atoms  To get to moles: □ Divide by Avogadro's number  To get to grams: □ Divide by Avogadro's number □ Then multiply by the molecular weight ○ To find the number of atoms in a molecule  Multiply the number of moleculesby the subscript of the atom you are trying to find • Percent Composition ○ (Mass of the element/ mass of the compound ) x100 College Chemistry 1 – Mona Chaudhary 6/14/2016 Important Words or Definitions Important People Important Concepts Lesson 12  Formulas from element composition o Empirical formula  Simplest formula  Relative ration of atoms  Smallest whole number ratio of atoms o Molecular (true) Formula  True ratio of atoms  Multiple of empirical formula ratios o Molecular formula = (empirical formula x n)  Element Relative mass Relative # of atoms Divide by the Whole # of atoms smallest # ratio Symbol Change % Divide the relative mass by Divide by the Whole sign to Grams the atomic weight of the smallest relative number element value ratio  Example: o A compound contains the following: 40% carbon, 6.7% hydrogen, 53.3% oxygen. What is the empirical formula? o What is the molecular formula if the compound has a molecular mass of 60.0 g/mol? o Element Relative mass of Relative # of Divide by the Whole # atoms atoms smallest # ratio C 40 g 40/12.01 3.33/3.33 1 H 6.7g 6.7/1.01 6.63/3.33 2 O 53.3g 53.3/16 3.33/3.33 1 Empirical formula = CH2O Molecular formula: Molecular weight of empirical formula = 12.01+2.02+16 = 30.03 60/30.03 = 1.998 (almost 2) Multiply all the subscripts by 2 C 2 4 2

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
