Problem 32E

The Modern View of Atomic Structure; Atomic Weights (Sections)Rubidium has two naturally occurring isotopes, rubidium-85 (atomic mass = 84.9118 amu; abundance = 72.15%) and rubidium-87 (atomic mass = 86.909) amu; abundance = 27.85%). Calculate the atomic weight of rubidium.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

th th Chapter 8 from “Introductory Chemistry” by Zumdahl and Decoste, 7 /8 edition Pg 167. COUNTING BY WEIGHING Average mass = total mass Number of item/variables Pg 170. ATOMIC MASSES: COUNTING ATOMS BY WEIGHING Want to know how many molecules are needed to make carbon dioxide C (s) + O2(g)  CO 2g) 1 atom + 1 molecule  1 molecule *because atoms weigh so little and kilograms would be too large of a measurement, chemists use Atomic Mass Unit (amu) In terms of grams: 1 amu = 1.66 x 10 -24g Average Atomic Mass: (means what its named…duh) Ex: Mass of 1000 natural C atoms = (1000 atoms) (12.01 (amu/atom))
