Mass Relationship in Chemical Reaction Atomic Mass - Mass of an atom in atomic mass units (amu) - Always to four significant figures Mole (n) - One mole of an atom = atomic mass in grams - Ex: One mole of H = 1.008g - Avogadros Number = number of atoms in a mole o 6.022 x 1023 - Moles in Grams o To find how many moles are in a certain amount of grams you use the formula: Moles = ( ) Mass g molar mass - Molar Mass o The mass in grams of 1 mole of units of a substance o Ex: Atomic mass of H: 1.008 amu Molar Mass of H: 1.008g Molar mass of CH4 : 16.04g - Formula mass (molecular mass) o The sum of the atomic masses in a molecule o Ex: Molecular mass of ammonia NH3 (ammonia) N (14.01 x 1) = 14.01g H (1.008 x 3) = 3.024g NH3 = 17.03g - Percent composition of a compound
