4 sig figs
6.1 - Atomic Mass and Formula Mass
In most samples of elements we treat every atom as if it has the same atomic mass.
N= 14.01amu
Zn= 65.41amu
Sn= 118.7amu
1 N atom
1 N atom
atomic mass conversion factor
Mass of a Sample of Atoms
atomic mass can be used to convert a known quantity of atoms to their mass (amu)
10 N atoms X
1 atom
140.1 amu
Using Atomic Mass to Count Atoms
6420amu X
1 S atom
2.00 X 10 S atoms
1500amu of N = ? atoms of N
Formula Mass
the sum of all the atomic masses of all the atoms in a formula
Formula Mass of Carbon Dioxide = ?
1 C atom X
1 C atom
2 O atoms X
1 O atom
Formula Mass of CO =
Formula Mass of water = ?
6.2 - The Mole
Just like eggs are counted by the dozen and paper is sold by the ream; atoms, molecules, and ions are counted in moles(mols).
12 eggs = 1 dozen
6.022 x 10 atoms = 1 mole
Subscripts State Moles of Elements
Subscripts in chemical formulas tell us how many atoms are in the compound.
If we have 1 mole of carbon dioxide how many moles of each element would we have? How many atoms?
1 mol of C and 2 mol of O
1 x 6.022 x 10 = atoms of C
2 x 6.022 x 10 = atoms of O
2 mol O
1 mol CO
1 mol C
1 mol CO
6.3 - Molar Mass
quantity in grams that equals the atomic mass of that element
6.4 - Calculations Using Molar Mass
molar mass is used to change moles into grams or grams into moles
equalities can be written as:
24.31 g Mg
1 mol Mg
1 mol Mg
24.31 g Mg
18.02 g H O
1 mol H O
1 mol H O
18.02 g H O
? g Ag in a .750 mol sample
? mols of NaCl in a 737 g sample
pg. 176-177
6.022 x 10
A 10.00 -lb bag to table sugar contains 4536 g sucrose, C H O . How many molecules of sugar are present?
or Atoms
element or compound
pg. 178
6.5 - Percent Composition and Empirical Formulas
Percent Composition - the mass percent of each element present in a compound
Molecular Formula - actual or true formulas of compounds
Empirical Formula - formula that represents the lowest whole-number ratio of the atoms in a compound
Empirical Formulas
determined by converting the # of grams of each element to moles and finding the lowest whole # ratio to use as subscripts
Converting Decimals to Whole numbers
Sometimes the result of dividing by the smallest number of moles gives a decimal instead of a whole number.
less than 0.1 or greater than 0.9, round to the nearest whole number
between 0.1 & 0.9, multiply by small integer until a whole number is obtained
Try the sample on pg. 184
6.6 Molecular Formulas
Molecular formula = small integer x empirical formula
Molar mass = small integer x empirical formula mass
small integer =
molar mass of compound (g/mol)
empirical formula mass (g/mol)
molar mass of ribose
empirical formula mass of ribose
150.0 g/mol
30.0 g/mol
= 5
5 x empirical formula (CH O) = molecular formula (C H O )
Calculating Molecular
Calculate mass of empirical formula
Divide molar mass by the empirical formula mass to obtain a small integer
Multiply the empirical formula by the small integer to obtain molecular formula
Try sample problem on pg. 187
