the MOLE…

Counting Atoms Everything we’ve done so far in chemistry has dealt with individual atoms or molecules However, it isn’t practical to work with 1 atom or 1 molecule or even 1,000,000 atoms or molecles They are just too small! Therefore, chemists don’t work with atom or even 1,000,000 atoms, they work with a huge collection of atoms

Counting Atoms It is impractical to get caught up into working with 1 atom or 1 atom’s mass. It makes more sense to work with a collection of atoms rather than individually Scientists were challenged to figure out a way to define a universal collection of particles And which could still be described in terms of a relative mass

Counting Atoms We’ve already got the periodic table with masses for each element So how many atoms are in that collection (assuming gram masses) That number of atoms would immediately connect all other atoms and give us measurable amounts Oxygen:

Counting Atoms Hydrogen: Carbon:

Counting Atoms The number of atoms that are in the gram mass on the PT is called Avogadro’s Number And is defined as 1 mole The mole becomes a counting unit much like the dozen. 1 dozen eggs = 12 eggs 1 mole of eggs = 602,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 eggs

Counting Atoms 1 mole is always = 6.02 x 1023 items
The word “mole” was introduced by Wilhelm Oswald, who derived the term from the word moles meaning a “heap” or “pile.” We are just defining the pile as con-taining 6.02x1023 items Any time we are counting how many we have and we want to describe it in terms of moles than… 1 mole is always = 6.02 x 1023 items

Counting Atoms The mole, whose abbreviation is “mol”, is the SI base unit for measuring amount of a pure substance. It’s used exclusively for counting atoms, molecules, ions, or other things that are extremely small It’s the chemist’s six-pack or dozen. Many objects in our everyday lives come in similar counting units. 1 ream = 500 sheets of paper 1 pair of socks = 2 socks 1 cube = 24 cans

Counting Atoms We will learn in the near future that when a chemist reasons through a chemical reaction (recipe) they think in terms of X number of mols of this compound reacts with Y number of mols of this compound. So we need to know how to calculate the number of molecules or atoms are involved in that X number of mols

How many moles is equivalent to 1.355x1024 atoms of Au?
Counting Atoms Using the mole in calculations #1 How many moles is equivalent to 1.355x1024 atoms of Au? unit equality: 1 mol Au = 6.02 x 1023 atoms Au

Counting Atoms = 2.251 mol Au The desired conversion is: atoms moles
1 mole Au 1.355x1024 atoms Au 6.02x1023atoms Au = mol Au

Counting Atoms Using the mole in calculations #2
How many molecules of carbon dioxide is mols? unit equality: 1 mol CO2 = 6.02x1023 molecules of CO2

Counting Atoms = 2.15x1022 molecules CO2
The desired conversion is: moles atoms 6.02x1023molecules CO2 mols CO2 1 mole CO2 = 2.15x1022 molecules CO2

Your Turn: 0.0753 mols of Na to atoms
Make the following mole conversions using dimensional analysis mols of Na to atoms 2.55x1025 molecules of CO2 to mols 1.89x1019 molecules of H2O to mols 1.25 mols of O2 to molecules

Counting Atoms Now suppose you want to determine how many atoms are in a mol of a compound or molecule To do this you must know how many atoms are involved in the molecule. To determine the number of atoms represented in a molecule requires knowing the chemical formula Eg, each molecule of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is composed of 3 atoms

How many atoms of Carbon are in 2.12 mols of Propane (C3H8)?
Counting Atoms Using the mole in calculations #3 How many atoms of Carbon are in 2.12 mols of Propane (C3H8)? unit equalities: 1 mol C3H8 = 6.02x1023 molecules C3H8 1 molecule C3H8 = 3 atoms C

The desired conversions are:
Counting Atoms The desired conversions are: moles  molecules  atoms 6.02x1023 molecules C3H8 2.12 mols C3H8 3 atoms C 1 molecule C3H8 1 mole C3H8 =3.83x1024 atoms C

Your Turn: How many atoms of Oxygen are there in 0.118 mols of CO2
Make the following mole conversions using dimensional analysis How many atoms of Oxygen are there in mols of CO2 How many atoms of Oxygen are there in Ca(NO3)2.

Counting Atoms We can’t literally count the number of atoms in a sample, but we can count them by mass So, there needs to be a connection between the mass of a sample and the number of moles in that sample If we weigh out a particular mass of a substance, that can represent a particular number of mols If we weighed out g of Carbon It will represent 1 mole of Carbon and/or 6.02x1023 Carbon atoms

18.99g F atoms=1 mol F atoms=6.02x10 F atoms
Counting Atoms This allows us to use the mass off of the periodic table to represent the mass of 1 mole (or 6.02x1023 atoms) of that element 1 mol of C atoms weighs g 1 mol of H atoms weighs g 1 mol of W atoms weigh g 18.99g F atoms=1 mol F atoms=6.02x10 F atoms 23

Counting Atoms This new understanding of mass from the periodic table is known as the gram molar mass, or molar mass. Molar Mass = mass of 1 mole of atoms in grams We have a list of every possible molar mass for any given element on the periodic table This mass can be used as a conversion factor…1 mole = g H, etc.

Counting Atoms So what if we have a compound instead of an element?
How do we figure out the mass of a mole of a compound? This would be called a molecular mass, formula mass, or still can be called a molar mass All we need is the formula for a representative particle of the compound and the periodic table.

Counting Atoms For instance how do we calculate the mass of 1 mole of Ca(OH)2? You can calculate the mass of a mol- ecule of Ca(OH)2 by breaking it up into individual pieces We can start with Calcium, then 2 O’s, then 2 H’s…until we run out of pieces Ca: (1)(40.09 g/mol) = 40.09 O: (2)(15.99 g/mol) = H: (2)(1.008 g/mol) = 74.09 g/mol

6.02x1023 molecules of the compound –weighs 180.1 grams
Counting Atoms What is the MM of glucose (C6H12O6)? (6C’S)(12.011g/mol) = 72.066g/mol (12H’S)(1.008 g/mol) = 12.096g/mol (6O’S)(15.99 g/mol) = 95.94g/mol 180.1g/mol 1 mole of C6H12O6 or 6.02x1023 molecules of the compound –weighs grams

Practice Time: C9H20 (NH4)2CO3 Zn(C2H3O2)2 CCl4
Calculate the molar mass of each of the formulas C9H20 (NH4)2CO3 Zn(C2H3O2)2 CCl4

How many grams are in 9.45 mol of Dinitrogen Trioxide (N2O3)
Counting Atoms Using the molar mass in calculations: How many grams are in 9.45 mol of Dinitrogen Trioxide (N2O3) The only connection to N2O3 and its mass is how much 1 mol of the compound weighs. But, using it as a comparison we can calculate the mass of 9.45 mol.

Counting Atoms Step 1: Determine the mass of 1 mol of N2O3
(2N’s)(14.01g) = 28.02g (3O’s)(15.99g) = 47.97g 75.99g If 1 mole of N2O3 weighs 75.99g than how much will 9.45 mols of N2O3 weigh?

Counting Atoms 75.99 g N2O3 9.45 mol N2O3 1 mol N2O3 =718 g N2O3
Step 2: Convert the given moles to grams using the Molar mass equality. 75.99 g N2O3 9.45 mol N2O3 1 mol N2O3 =718 g N2O3

Counting Atoms Find the number of moles of
92.2g of Iron (III) Oxide (Fe2O3) The only connection to the mass of Fe2O and how that corresponds to mols is how that 1 mol of the compound weighs a certain # of grams. Using that we can figure out how many moles weigh 92.2 g

Counting Atoms (2Fe’s)(55.85g) = 111.7g (3O’s)(15.99g) = 47.97g
Step 1: Determine the mass of 1 mol of Fe2O3 (2Fe’s)(55.85g) = 111.7g (3O’s)(15.99g) = 47.97g 159.67g If 1 mole of Fe2O3 weighs g than how many mols will weigh 92.2 g of Fe2O3?

Counting Atoms 1 mol Fe2O3 92.2 g Fe2O3 159.67 g Fe2O3 =.577mol Fe2O3
Step 2: Convert the given mass to mols using the Molar mass equality 1 mol Fe2O3 92.2 g Fe2O3 g Fe2O3 =.577mol Fe2O3

Practice Time: Determine the number of mols of CO2 in 454 grams.
What is the mass of mols of propane gas, C3H8? How many mols of methane molecules, CH4, are in grams of methane? How many grams does x10-5 mols of Na2CO3 weigh?

Counting Atoms Another generality about the mole is that with matter in the gas phase we can develop another equality. Under the same conditions, equal volumes of gases contain equal numbers of particles. 1 mol of a gas will occupy the same volume as 1 mol of any other gas under the same conditions.

Molar Volume of a Gas 22.4 L 22.4 L 1 mole of any gas under the specific conditions of 0°C and 1 atm (STP) will occupy a volume of 22.4 L. 6.02x1023 molecules of O2 6.02x1023 molecules of CO2

What volume, in Liters, does 0.60 mol of SO2 gas occupy at STP?
Counting Atoms What volume, in Liters, does 0.60 mol of SO2 gas occupy at STP? The only connection to the volume of any gas and how that corresponds to mols is that 1 mol of a gas occupies 22.4 Liters of space. Using that we can figure out the volume of 0.60 mols of a gas at STP.

Counting Atoms 22.4 L SO2 0.60 moles SO2 1 mole SO2 = 13 L SO2
Step 1: Use the equality 1 mol = 22.4 L to do the conversion 22.4 L SO2 0.60 moles SO2 1 mole SO2 = 13 L SO2

Practice Time: What volume is occupied by mols of nitrogen gas at STP? How many moles of gas would be in 15,000 L of air?
