How many molecules of glycerol (C3, H8, O3) would be present in 1 L of M glycerol solution?
I am thinking it is 6.02 x 10^23 but have also heard conflicting opinions.
You don't give the molarity of the C3H8O3. 1 mole of anything contains 6.02 x 10^23 molecules of that "thing." Therefore, if it is 1 M, it contains 1 mol/L and will contain 1 mole of molecules. I hope this helps.
sorry, it was how many molecules of glycerol would be present in 1 L of a 1 M glycerol solution.
So you have your answer since I assumed a 1 M soln for my previous answer.
