As of May 17th 1213, the price of cobalt metal on the London Metal Exchange was $27500 per metric ton. One metric ton is defined as 1000Kg. Determine the price of cobalt in cents per atom.

Look at PT and get molar mass for Cobalt. Then in your final calculation set grams= to atoms which is the same as moles.
Do you know how to set up initially?

No, could you explain PT.
the molar mass for cobalt is 58.93 g/mols \
where do i go form there

periodic table..you have it correct. gram/mol
moles are same thing as atoms so your last calcs will be
1kg/1000g=1gram=1mole/58.93 grams you should be left with moles which again is atoms.

so it would be
27500 metric ton * 1 metric ton/1000kg *1kg/1000g*1mol/58.93g
giving you 466.655 cents in atoms?
is that right or did i mess up
- chemistry - Steve, Monday, May 27, 2013 at 9:15am
I got 162 cents per atom
I could be wrong but that's what Im calculating

what that correct?
