Problem 2Q

How can you efficiently determine the number of atoms in a sample of an element? Why is counting them not an option?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 2Q

Here, we are going to discuss the efficient method of determining the number of atoms in a sample of an element.

Step 1:

We can determine the number of atoms in a sample of an element by using ‘mole concept’. One mole of any species is that quantity in number having a mass equal to its atomic or molecular mass in grams.

The number of particles (atoms, molecules or ions) present in 1 mole of any substance is fixed, with a value of 6.022 × 1023. This is an experimentally obtained value. This number is called the Avogadro Constant or Avogadro Number.

Step 2:

In order to determine the number of atoms in a sample of an element, we have to follow certain steps.

Record the weight of the sampleWe need to find the element on the periodic table and record its molar massUse unitary method for the conversion of the weight to the number of atoms in the sample ny using the concept of mole.
