Lecture 4 James P. Dittami Molecular and Formula Mass Molecular and Formula Mass Use the formula for a compound and the atomic masses from the periodic table to calculate overall mass For Covalent Compounds – Molecular Mass For Ionic Compounds – Formula Mass Commonly referred to as Molecular Weight Molecular Mass Molecular Mass Molecular Mass = (1 x atomic mass N) + (3 x atomic mass F) = 14.01 amu + (3 x 19.00 amu) = 71.01 amu NF3 – Nitrogen trifluoride Formula Mass Formula Mass
NaF – Sodium Fluoride Formula Mass = (1 x atomic mass Na) + (1 x atomic mass F) = 22.99 amu + 19.00 amu = 41.99 amu Formula Mass Formula Mass Formula Mass = (1 x atomic mass Ba) + (2 x atomic mass N) + (6 x atomic mass O) = 137.3 amu + (2 x 14.01 amu) + (6 x 16.00 amu) = 261.3 amu Ba(NO3)2 – Barium Nitrate Counting by Weighing Counting by Weighing
Problem we want a way to count large number of small things pills, paper clips, atoms. Solution if they are all of similar weight and we know an average weight then Number of items = Total Mass Average Mass Counting Atoms Counting Atoms
Should be same as counting by weighing Caveat – Mass of all atoms in an element is not the same due to isotopes Carbon – Consists of 12 C – 98.89 % 12 amu and 13C – 1.11 % 14 C present is negligible Average Atomic Mass C = 12.01 amu Average Atomic Mass Average Atomic Mass
Calculate the average mass for any element
Avg. Mass = (Abundance A)(Isotope Mass A) + (Abundance B)(Isotope Mass B) + (Abundance C) (Isotope Mass C) ….etc Average Atomic Mass Average Atomic Mass
Calculate the average mass for Neon which is found in nature as 90.92 % 20Ne – mass 20 amu 0.257 % 21Ne – mass 21 amu 8.82 % 22Ne – mass 22 amu
Avg. Mass = (0.9092)(20) + (0.00257)(21) + (0.0882)(22) Avg. Mass = 20.18 amu The Mole The Mole
Mole – Defined as the number of carbon atoms in exactly 12 grams of pure 12C Experimentally determined as 6.02214 x 1023 atoms We will use 6.022 x 1023 We call this quantity Avogadro’s number Recall his assumption !! Moles Moles By definition 1 mole of anything contains 6.022 x 1023 units of that substance. Because of the way we define a mole we can count atoms by weighing. Mole – Defined as the number of carbon atoms in exactly 12 grams of pure 12C where an atom of 12C is defined to have a mass of 12 atomic mass units. Counting atoms Counting atoms
By analogy a 12.01 gram sample of naturally occurring carbon will contain 6.022 x 1023 atoms each with an average weight of 12.01 amu Careful – if you could pick a single atom out what would it’s mass be? Ans. Either that of 12C or 13C but not 12.01 Moles – expanded definition Moles – expanded definition If we take a sample of a natural element whose Mass is equal to the element’s Atomic Mass expressed in grams, the sample will contain 1 mole of atoms. Molar Mass Molar Mass
If we take a sample of a compound whose Mass is equal to it’s molecular Mass expressed in grams, the sample will contain 1 mole of molecules. One mole of CH = 16.04 g as follows 4 1 mole C =12.01 g 4 moles H = 4 x 1.008 g Mass of 1 mole CH4 = 16.04 g Oxygen 32.00 g One mole of common substances. CaCO3 100.09 g Water 18.02 g Copper 63.55 g Table 3.1
