Anna Toy-Palmer 1 Chem 100 Chapter 6 -- Counting Atoms by the Gram Can determine mass or weight of a group of objects by counting the number of objects Nails (0.150 lb nails = 1 dozen nails) Buying 120 nails is buying 1.5 lbs Sometimes for integral objects, easier to count number of objects to get “weight” or mass than weighing objects Instead of weighing atoms to determine mass, count them

Anna Toy-Palmer 2 Chem 100 Converting between mass and number of atoms For atoms, we need a number that we can easily convert between number of atoms and a tangible mass. Avogadro’s number 1 mole (1 mol) = 6.022 X 10 23

Anna Toy-Palmer 3 Chem 100 Avogadro’s number 1 mol ANYTHING = 6.022 X 10 23 ANYTHING Numerical value of a mole is defined as being equal to the number of atoms in exactly 12 g of pure carbon-12 1 mol carbon atoms (pure carbon-12) = 6.022 X 10 23 carbon atoms = 12 g of pure carbon-12

Anna Toy-Palmer 4 Chem 100 How many guacs are in a bowl of guacamole? Avocados number. If a mole of moles were digging a mole of holes, what would you see? A mole of molasses. What did Avogadro contract when he was bitten by 6.022 X 10 23 mosquitoes? Mole-aria What was Avogadro’s favorite subject in school? Mole- tiplication How did Avogadro exaggerate? He made mountains out of mole hills.

Anna Toy-Palmer 6 Chem 100 Molar mass (grams and moles of an element) Molar mass is the mass of 1 mol of atoms. This value is equal to the elements atomic mass in atomic mass units. What is the mass of 1 mole of hydrogen atoms? What is the mass of 1 mol of oxygen atoms? What is the mass of 1 mol of helium atoms?
