calculate number of atoms in 4.67 mol of Ca(NO3)2

I got:

2.81 X 10^24 C atoms or should it be 28.11 x 10^23 C atoms?

5.62 X 10^24 N atoms or should it be 9.34 x 10^23 N atoms?

1.69 x 10^25 O atoms....but are you allowed to do ^25 or should it be 168.7 X 10^23 O atoms I'm confused about exponents again.

also, do I need to worry about rounding to the correct number of signifcant digits when doing these questions?

Always round to the correct number of significant digits.

Proper scientific notation is X.SY*10^qr

2.84*10^24

5.62*10^24

1.69*10^25 are all correct.
