One M&M candy has a volume of 1.0mL. What volume, in cubic meters, would one mole of M&M candies occupy?
2) For this next calculation, you’re going to compare the volume of a mole of M&Ms to Lake Erie, which has a volume of 116mi^3. How many lakes the size of Lake Erie would a mole of M&M candies fill?
3) A package of 50 M&M candies costs 50 cents. How much would a mole of M&Ms cost, in dollars? Given that the annual budget of the United States is approximately two trillion dollars ($2 X 10^12), how many years would it take for the US to pay for a mole of M&Ms?
