3 Counting Atoms Masses of atoms expressed in grams are extremely small. An atom of O-16 literally weighs gFor 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
4 Counting AtomsThe mass of all the other atoms are then expressed in relation to the standardC-12 atom acts as the standardA 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 atomCarbon has 12 nucleons therefore, the mass of a proton = 1 amu6CARBONC12
5 Counting AtomsThe masses of all other atoms are based on the mass of 1 amuHydrogen has 1 proton therefore, it weighs 1 amuHelium has 2 protons and 2 neutrons therefore, it weighs 4 amusMost elements occur naturally as a mixture of isotopes.For instance in the two isotopes of Chlorine (Cl-35 & Cl-37)
6 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-3525% of the all of the Cl atoms found in nature are the isotope Cl-37Cl-35 atoms are naturally more abundant than Cl-37Therefore, the average mass of Cl (taking into account isotopic abun-dance) should be closer to 35 than to the median of 36.
7 Here’s how the masses were calculated on the Periodic Table: Counting AtomsMasses on the PT are weighted aver-ages of all of the naturally occurring isotopes of an elementThe average atomic mass on the PT is reflective of both the mass numbers of each isotope & the abundance of each isotopeHere’s how the masses were calculated on the Periodic Table:
8 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.
9 Counting Atoms 63.55 amu 63.54564387858 amu Cu-63 The reported average atomic mass of naturally occurring Cu is amu.
10 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.
11 Counting AtomsIt 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 individuallyScientists were challenged to figure out a way to define a collection of particlesAnd which could still be described in terms of a relative mass
12 Counting AtomsIf we assume we can relate the relative masses from the PT in the terms of gramsWith the literal masses of an atom (g) for each atom we use we seem to get the same number of atomsOxygen:
14 Counting AtomsThe 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 NumberAnd is defined as a moleThe mole becomes a counting unit much like the dozen.1 dozen eggs = 12 eggs1 mole of eggs =602,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 eggs
15 Counting AtomsThe 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 itemsAny 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
16 Counting AtomsThe 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 smallIt’s the chemist’s six-pack or dozen. Many objects in our everyday lives come in similar counting units.1 ream = 500 sheets of paper1 pair of socks = 2 socks1 cube = 24 cans
17 Counting AtomsWe 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

27 Counting AtomsWe can’t literally count the number of atoms in a sample, but we can count them by massSo, there needs to be a connection between the mass of a sample and the number of moles in that sampleIf we weigh out a particular mass of a substance, that can represent a particular number of molsIf we weighed out g of CarbonIt will represent 1 mole of Carbon and/or 6.02x1023 Carbon atoms

29 Counting AtomsThis 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 gramsWe have a list of every possible molar mass for any given element on the periodic tableThis mass can be used as a conversion factor…1 mole = g H, etc.
30 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 massAll we need is the formula for a representative particle of the compound and the periodic table.
31 Counting AtomsFor 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 piecesWe can start with Calcium, then oxygens, then 2 hydrogens… until we run out of pieces74.09 g/molCa: (1)(40.09 g/mol) =40.09O: (2)(15.99 g/mol) =H: (2)(1.008 g/mol) =
