Unformatted text preview: As a result, for all other elements the numeric value of the mass in grams of one mole of atoms and the weightedaverage atomic mass in atomic mass units are equal. For example, the weighted average atomic mass of lithium is 6.941 u and the mass of one mole of lithium atoms is 6.941 g. Thus, we can easily establish the mass of one mole of atoms, called the molar mass, M, from a table of atomic masses.* For example, the molar mass of lithium is 6.941 g Li> mol Li. Figure 2-16 attempts to portray the distribution of isotopes of an element, and Figure 2-17 pictures one mole each of four common elements. We established the atomic mass of 16O relative to that of 12C on page 47. ▲ 1 mol of C = 6.02214 * 1023 C atoms = 1...
