#### Transcript of A mole of bowling balls would have a mass of how many times

A mole of bowling balls would have a mass of how many times greater than the mass of the moon ?

6.5kg

Mass of 1 bowling ball

The mole is a unit of measurement used in chemistry to express amounts of a chemical substance.

The Mole

7.35 x 10^22 kg

Mass of the moon

So we take the mass of one bowling ball in grams

Now we can solve

6500 g

What we know now ...

So now we know. . .

Let's Compare!

A mole of bowling balls is 53 times greater than the mass of the moon.

Which will then be converted to.....

6500.0g

53x more!

6500 g

1 bowling ball

Now we multiply by Avagadro's Number

6500 g

6.02 x10^23

x

1 mole of bowling balls

=

3.91x10^27

per bolwing bal

l

1 bowling ball

3.91 x 10^27

1 mole of bowling balls

In other words we now know that one me of bowling balls is 3.91 x 10^27

1 mole of bowling balls = 3.91 x 10^27g

And the mass of the moon = 7.35 x 10^22

Now we need to convert to kg!

Mass of bowling ball (kg) = 3.91 x 10^26

Mass of the moon (kg) = 7.35 x 10^22

More Calculations

Now we need to divide the mole of bowling balls by the mass of the moon

So, 3.91 x 10 ^26

7.35 x 10^22

=

5319.73 times greater
