Introduction How did you determine the number of M&Ms in the bag without actually counting?
Atoms Can you determine the number of atoms of an element even though you can not actually count them? Yes… IF there is a conversion factor that allows you to convert between mass and number of atoms.
Key Terms Relative atomic mass (RAM or A r ) Relative formula mass (RFM) Relative molecular mass (RMM or M r ) Avogadro’s number Mole
By the end of the lesson you will be able to.... Rearrange the mole triangle to convert mass to moles and vice versa. Work out the formula of a substance if you know the percentage masses.
What is a mole (description)? What is the value for a mole? If we had a mole of bananas, how many bananas would we have? If we had a mole of carbon atoms, how many atoms would we have? What is the mass of a mole of carbon atoms?
What is a mole ? A mole is a name for a number just like the word dozen is a name for a number. As you know, a dozen means the number 12. A mole is a number too but a much, much, much bigger number. A mole is 602,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. In words it is six hundred and two hexillion ! Why is a mole so big? Because it is used to count atoms and molecules which are very, very, very small, It takes lots of them just to be seen much less work with them. A speck of dusk contains trillions of atoms or more!
To calculate the number of moles we need to know the mass and the M r (RAM): Moles = Mass M r Calculate the number of moles (to 2dp) in... a.13g of Na b. 26g of Mg c.46g of Ca 0.57 moles 1.08 moles 1.15 moles
To calculate the mass of a substance when we know how many moles there are... Mass = Moles x M r Calculate the mass of... a.2 moles of Li b.3.5 moles of C c.0.3 moles of S 14g 42g 9.6g
Counting Atoms and Molecules If atoms and molecules are so small and numerous, how can they be counted?? If atoms and molecules could be seen and all the people on the earth began counting the water molecules in our five teaspoons of water and if everyone counted day and night for his entire life, and if we added all their results together we would still not count them all !! Counting atoms and molecules is difficult but we have an easy way to count them.
How many marbles are in the jar ? How can we find out without counting them all ?? Suppose that we could weigh a dozen of the marbles and we could also weigh the marbles in the jar ! How would that help ? Let’s pretend that the marbles in the jar weigh 2000 grams and a dozen marbles weigh 25 grams. Can you tell the number of marbles in the jar ?
COUNTING LARGE NUMBERS OF SMALL THINGS In our marble example, the marbles weighed 2000 grams and one dozen of the marbles weighed 25 grams. Dividing 2000 grams (all the marbles) by 25 grams (the weight of one dozen) gives 80 dozen marbles. Multiplying 80 times 12 we get 960 marbles in the jar without actually counting all of the marble ! In the case of atoms or molecules the same idea can be used. If we know the weight of a number of a certain type of atom or molecule and the weight of the sample that we have we can then determine the number of atoms or molecules in the sample by division and multiplication.
COUNTING LARGE NUMBERS OF SMALL THINGS In counting atoms and molecules we will not use a dozen as our counted quantity. A dozen atoms would be so small that they could never even be seen with traditional microscopes. Our counted quantity will be one mole (6.02 x *) atoms or molecules. Unlike our marble example we will not count out and weigh the reference sample. Luckily, this work has been done for us. The Periodic Table of the Elements lists the weight (mass) of one mole of every element. We can find the weight of one mole of each element in grams. * 6.02 x = 602,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 = 1 mole
MOLES GRAMS MULTIPLE BY GRAM MOLECULAR / ATOMIC WEIGHT* GRAMS MOLES DIVIDE BY GRAM MOLECULAR / ATOMIC WEIGHT * weight of one mole from the periodic table How are the number of moles determined from the number of grams ?
MOLES ATOMS MOLES ATOMS multiply by 6.02 x MOLES ATOMS divide by 6.02 x How are the number of atoms determined from the number of moles ?
How heavy is a mole? The mass of 1 mole of a substance varies. It depends on its RAM or RMM. 1 mole of carbon has a mass of 12g but 1 mole of oxygen would have a mass of 32g. We can work out how many moles of a substance we have by dividing mass by RAM/RMM. Mass (g) RAM/RMMmoles
MOLES Mass (g) Volume (L) # Atoms Conversion Factor: molar mass Conversion Factor: molar volume (22.4 L / 1 mol) Conversion Factor: Avogadro’s number 6.02 x atoms/mol

Let’s try some problems with moles ! How many moles are contained in 36.0 grams of oxygen? Solution: 36.0 grams / 16.0 grams per mole = 2.25 moles 36.0 grams contains 2.25 moles of Oxygen Atoms From the Periodic Table
How many atoms are contained in 36.0 grams of oxygen? Solution: 36.0 grams / 16.0 grams per mole = 2.25 moles of O 2.25 mole x (6.02 x atoms per mole) = 1.35 x10 24 atoms of oxygen
How many moles are contained in 3.6 x atoms? Solution: (3.6 x atoms) / (6.02 x ) = 6.0 moles OF ANY KIND OF ATOMS !!
How many grams does 3.6 x atoms of S “weigh” (mass)? SOLUTION: From the Periodic Table, Gram Atomic Mass of S is 32.1 grams (3.6 x ) / (6.02 x ) = 6.0 moles of S 6.0 x 32.1 = grams of Sulfur is the “weight” (mass) of 3.6 x atoms of S!
Moles are useful because they help us work out how much of something we might make or need. E.g. what mass of CO is made if you burn carbon with 16g of O 2 ? Write an equation: 2C + O 2 2CO The equation tells us how many moles of everything there is: 2 moles of C + 1 mole of O 2 2 moles of CO Now work out how many moles you have of O 2 (it has to be O 2 because this is the only substance you are told anything about): Moles of O 2 = mass/RMM = 16/32 = 0.5 mol Now use the equation to work out how many moles of CO you would make: If there was 1 mole of O 2 there would be 2 moles of CO so moles of CO = moles O 2 x 2 = 1 mol Now convert the numbers of moles you have to mass: Mass of CO = moles x RMM = 1 x (12+16) = 28g
Moles and Gases Remember that 1 mole of ANY gas at room temperature and pressure is 22400cm 3 or 22.4dm 3 or 22.4l. Example: what volume of gas would be made if 6g of carbon reacted with oxygen? Write an equation: C + O 2 CO 2 The equation tells us how many moles of everything there is: 1 mole of C + 1 mole of O 2 1 mole of CO 2 Now work out how many moles you have of C (it has to be C because this is the only substance you are told anything about): Moles of C = mass/RMM = 6/12 = 0.5 mol Now use the equation to work out how many moles of CO 2 you would make: If there was 1 mole of C there would be 1 mole of CO 2 so moles of CO 2 = moles C = 0.5 mol Now convert the numbers of moles you have to volume: Volume of CO 2 = moles x volume = 0.5 x 24 = 12dm 3
Moles and Concentration Moles Conc (mol/dm 3 ) Vol (dm 3 ) 1 mole of a substance dissolved in 1 dm 3 of water has a concentration of 1mol/dm 3 or 1M. Example: What is the concentration of a solution of NaCl containing 58.5g in 500cm 3 of water? Moles of NaCl = mass/RMM= 58.5/58.5 = 1mol Concentration = moles/vol = 1/0.5= 2M

Mass in grams of 1 mole equal numerically to the sum of the atomic masses 1 mole of CaCl 2 = g/mol 1 mole Ca x 40.1 g/mol + 2 moles Cl x 35.5 g/mol = 71 g/mol = g/mol CaCl 2 1 mole of N 2 O 4 = 92.0 g/mol Molar Mass of Molecules and Compounds

WHAT ABOUT MOLECULES?? A MOLECULE IS A GROUP OF CHEMICALLY BONDED (LINKED) ATOMS. FOR EXAMPLE: CARBON DIOXIDE FORMULA: CO 2 IT CONSISTS OF 1 ATOM OF CARBON C AND TWO ATOMS OF OXYGEN O
