Atomic Masses & the MOLE…

Counting Atoms Masses of atoms expressed in grams are extremely small.
An atom of O-16 literally weighs g For most calcs in chemistry it is easier to use a relative atomic mass. for relative masses, an atom was arbitrarily chosen as the standard, by which all other masses are compared

Counting Atoms The mass of all the other atoms are then expressed in relation to the standard C-12 atom acts as the standard A single C-12 atom was assigned a mass of 12 atomic mass units (amu) 1 amu is exactly 1/12 of the mass of a C-12 atom Carbon has 12 nucleons therefore, the mass of a proton = 1 amu 6 CARBON C 12

Counting Atoms The masses of all other atoms are based on the mass of 1 amu Hydrogen has 1 proton therefore, it weighs 1 amu Helium has 2 protons and 2 neutrons therefore, it weighs 4 amus Most elements occur naturally as a mixture of isotopes. For instance in the two isotopes of Chlorine (Cl-35 & Cl-37)

Counting Atoms Cl-35 atoms are naturally more abundant than Cl-37
75% of all of the Cl atoms found in nature are the isotope Cl-35 25% of the all of the Cl atoms found in nature are the isotope Cl-37 Cl-35 atoms are naturally more abundant than Cl-37 Therefore, the average mass of Cl (taking into account isotopic abun-dance) should be closer to 35 than to the median of 36.

Here’s how the masses were calculated on the Periodic Table:
Counting Atoms Masses on the PT are weighted aver-ages of all of the naturally occurring isotopes of an element The average atomic mass on the PT is reflective of both the mass numbers of each isotope & the abundance of each isotope Here’s how the masses were calculated on the Periodic Table:

Counting Atoms Calculating average atomic masses:
Naturally occurring copper consists of 69.17% Cu-63, which has a mass of amu, and 30.83% Cu-65, with a mass of amu. The average atomic mass of Cu is calculated by multiplying the atomic mass of each isotope by its abundance and adding the results.

Counting Atoms 63.55 amu 63.54564387858 amu Cu-63
The reported average atomic mass of naturally occurring Cu is amu.

Your Turn: Gallium consists of two isotopes of masses amu and amu with abundances of 60.16% and 39.84%, respectively. What is the average atomic mass of gallium? Naturally occurring element X exists in three isotopic forms: X-28 ( amu, 92.21% abundance), X-29 ( amu, 4.70% abundance), and X-30 ( amu, 3.09% abundance). Calculate the atomic weight of X.

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 collection of particles And which could still be described in terms of a relative mass

Counting Atoms If we assume we can relate the relative masses from the PT in the terms of grams With the literal masses of an atom (g) for each atom we use we seem to get the same number of atoms Oxygen:

Counting Atoms Hydrogen: Carbon:

Counting Atoms The number of atoms that are in the relative masses of elements identical in grams to the atomic masses on the PT is called Avogadro’s Number And is defined as a 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 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 = 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 of Magnesium
Counting Atoms Using the mole in calculations #1 How many moles of Magnesium is 1.25 x 1023 atoms of Magnesium? unit equality: 1 mol Mg = 6.02 x 1023 atoms Mg

Counting Atoms = .208 mol Mg The desired conversion is: atoms moles
1 mole Mg 1.25x1023 atoms Mg 6.02x1023atoms Mg = .208 mol Mg

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:

Your Turn: Fill in the missing information in the following table, be sure to show your work. Moles Atoms or molecules # of ____ atoms mols Al(OH)3 7.2511x1024 molecules # of O atoms 3.350x10-12 mols H2O 2.017 x 1012 molecules H2O # of total atoms 9.995x1018 mols W 6.017 x 1042 atoms W .2116 mols Al+3 1.274x1023 ions Al+3

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 oxygens, then 2 hydrogens… until we run out of pieces 74.09 g/mol Ca: (1)(40.09 g/mol) = 40.09 O: (2)(15.99 g/mol) = H: (2)(1.008 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

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: Vitamin C (C6H8O6), cannot be stored by the body and therefore, must be present in the diet. If an orange contains 70 mg of Vit C how many oranges are necessary to consume 2.5 mols of Vit C?

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
