Problem 19P Problem 19P

Cisplatin (right), or Platinol, is used in the treatment of certain cancers. Calculate (a) the moles of compound in 285.3 g of cisplatin;

(b) the number of hydrogen atoms in 0.98 mol of cisplatin.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Solution 19P:

Cisplatin is an anticancer drug. The chemical formula of cisplatin is

Cis- [Pt(NH3)2Cl2]

Step 1:

Here, we have to determine the moles of compound in 285.3 g of cisplatin.

The molar mass of Cis- [Pt(NH3)2Cl2] = 300.1 g/mol

The moles of Cis- [Pt(NH3)2Cl2] = (285.3 g cisplatin)

                                    = 0.9507 mol cisplatin

Therefore, 0.9507 mol cisplatin is in 285.3 g of cisplatin.
