(IB TOPIC 1) SUMMARY
• 1 dm3 = 1 litre = 1 x 10-3m3 = 1 x 103 cm3 = 1000 ml • Amount of substance, n, is measured in moles (mol). • 1 mol of a chemical species contains the same number of particles as there
are atoms in exactly 12 g of C-12 ( 12 C ) isotope.
6 • 1 mol of any substance contains 6.02 × 1023 particles; 6.02 × 1023 mol−1 is
called Avogadro’s Constant (L or NA) • Ar, the relative atomic mass of an element is the ratio of the mass of an
atom of the element to the mass of one atom of C-12; Ar has no units. • Mr, the relative molecular mass also has no units. • M, the molar mass is the mass of one mole of any chemical species and has
the units g mol−1. The amount of substance, n in moles = n= mass ( g )

mass in grams • Use Avogadro Constant to convert between amount and number of
particles. • Use molar mass of substance to convert between amount in moles and mass
in grams. • Empirical formula gives the simplest whole number ratio of atoms in a
compound. • Molecular formula gives the actual number of atoms of each element in the
molecule of a compound. If a molecular formula is given, percentage composition can be calculated. If the percentage composition is given:
• Consider 100 g of sample, the % of each element becomes its mass. • Convert the mass of each element to its amount in moles. • Determine simplest whole number ratio – this is its empirical formula. • Molecular formula is a whole-number multiple of the empirical formula. • Substances react by amounts based on a balanced chemical equation. © IBID Press 2007 1 CHAPTER 1 QUANTITATIVE CHEMISTRY
(IB TOPIC 1) SUMMARY
If masses are given, convert these to amounts of substances.
• In stoichiometric problems, apply mole ratios as specified in the balanced
chemical equation. • The % yield indicates how efficient a reaction is (given by: experimental yield
• STP for gases is standard temperature (0°C or 273 K) and pressure (1
atmosphere or 101.325 kPa). • Molar volume, Vm, of any gas at STP = 22.4 dm3. In a balanced chemical equation, coefficients stand for the amount of substance. For
gases, these also refer to volumes of gases.
Concentration, c = amount n (mol)
= mol dm −3 .
Vol solution (dm ) V n = cV; volume must be in dm3.
On dilution, the amount of solute does not change but the volume increases and the
Amount n = m (g)
M (g mol −1 ) For a reaction aA + bB → products, where a and b are coefficients, then
a nA = b nB .
