A runner weighs 560 N (about 130 lb), and 74% of this weight is water.

(a) How many moles of water are in the runner's body?
moles

(b) How many water molecules (H2O) are there?
molecules

I dont' unstand what to do here. I know have to fine mole per h2o

• Physics -

The runner weighs 560 N so his mass id 560/9.8 = 57.1 kg
so
.74 * 57.1 = 42.3 kg water

a mol of H2O = 2 grams + 16 grams = 18 grams = 18 * 10^-3 kg/mol

so moles of water = 42.3 kg / (18*10^-3 kg/mol) = 2.35 *10^3 moles

there are 6*10^23 molecules/mol of anything

so number of molecules = 2.35 * 10^3 *6*10^23
= 14.1*10^26 = 1.41 *10^27 molecules

Thank you for your help. I did want to clarify why you are only calculating the Molar Mass for H2 and not the molar mass for H2O (or even H2O2). I'm not sure why you did this. Please clarify. See below: The following reaction represents …
