What conversion factor do youuse to convert between molesof a substance and its molarmass?
A chemist has a 3.25-mole sample of fluorine (F) to use in an experiment. What is the mass ofthis sample?
moles by being on opposite sides of the fraction. Remember toplace the given value over 1 to help.Moles does not cancel3.25 mol F1 × 1 mol F18.998 g FMoles do cancel3.25mol F1 × 18.998 g F1mol FStep 3Now multiply the given value by the correct conversion factorso that the units cancel.3.25mol F1 × 18.998 g F1mol F=61.7 g FSo, 3.25 moles of fluorine equals 61.7 grams of fluorine. Thisnumber was rounded to three significant digits to match thegiven measured value.
