Thanks so much!!! :)
A mol is 6*10^23 of anything, sort of like a dozen is 12 of anything
3.50 x 10^21 atoms (1 mol of atoms/6*10^23 atoms)
= (3.5/6) 10^(-2) = .58*10^-2 mol = 5.8 *10^-3 = .0058 moles
Now with that information and knowing that a mole of any chemical weighs its gram molecular mass I think you can do the rest
for example a mol of water, H2O has mass
2 H + O = 2(1) + 16 = 18 grams
so for water
18 grams is 6*10^23 molecules is one mole
4. mols = grams/molar mass
5. At what pressure? If you mean standard pressure of 760 mm Hg then you need to remember that 1 mol of gas occupies 22.4 L at STP
6. Take a 100 g sample which will be
Convert these to mols by mols = g/atomic mass.
36.2/27 = about 1.34
63.8/32 = about 2
Find the ratio. The easy way to do that is to divide both numbers by the smaller number. This makes the smaller number of the two exactly 1.0.
Al = 1.24/1.24--This is to get qet 1.00
S = 2/1.34 = 1.49
Obviously, the answer is NOT Al1S1.5 because we want whole numbers. But a 1:1.5 ratio also is 2:3 in whole numbers so the empirical formula is Al2S3.
