Question 1:
How many Olympic-sized swimming pools could 1 mole of M&Ms fill?
Step 1: Find the volume
Volume of 1 M&M: 0.6 ml

Volume of an Olympic-sized pool:

2,500 cubic meters

Mass of 10 M&Ms: 8.5g

Mass of 1 M&M: 0.85g
Water displacement
40 ml→46 ml

Volume of 10 M&Ms: 6 ml
Volume of 1 M&M: 0.6 ml
Diameter of 1 M&M: 1.3 mm
Width: 0.7 mm
Step 2: Convert the units
M&M: Convert ml→cubic centimeters:

1 ml = 1 cm^3
0.6 cm^3 x (1ml / 1cm^3) = 0.6 ml
Volume of 1 M&M = 0.6 cm^3

Pool: Convert cubic meters→cubic centimeters:

1 m^3 = 1,000,000 cm^3
2,500 m^3 x (1,000,000 cm^3 / 1 m^3)
= 2,500,000,000 cm^3 or 2.5 x 10^9
Volume of Pool = 2.5 x 10^9 cm^3

Step 3:
Find 1 mole of M&Ms
1 mole = 6.02 x 10^23

(6.02 x 10^23) x 0.6 cm^3
= 3.61 x 10^23 cm^3
Step 4: Calculations
1 mole of M&Ms
Volume of Pool
_________________
3.61 x 10^23 cm^3
2.5 x 10^9 cm^3
= ____________________
= 1.44 x 10^14
Result
1 mole of M&Ms would be able to fill 144 trillion Olympic - sized swimming pools
Question 2: How much of the Ocean would 1 mole of M&Ms fill?
Step 1: Find the volume
Volume of 1 M&M:
0.6 cubic centimeters

Volume of the Ocean:
321, 003, 271 cubic miles

Step 2: Convert the units
M&Ms: Convert cm^3→km^3:

1 cm^3 = 1.0 x 10^-15 km^3
0.6 cm^3 x (1.0 x 10^-15 km^3 / 1 cm^3)
= 6.0 x 10^-16 km^3
Volume of 1 M&M = 6.0 x 10^-16 km^3

Ocean: Convert mi^3 → km^3:

1 mi^3 = 4.1682 km^3
321,003,271 mi^3 x (4.1682 km^3 / 1 mi^3)
= 1,338,005,834 km^3
Volume of the Ocean = 1,338,005,834 km^3
Step 3:
Find 1 mole of M&Ms
1 Mole = 6.02 x 10^23

(6.02 x 10^23) x (6.0 x 10^-16)
= 361,200,000 km^3
Step 4: Calculations
1 mole of M&Ms
Volume of the Ocean
______________________
361,200,000 km^3
1,338,005,834 km^3
= ____________________
= 0.27
Result
1 mole of M&Ms would fill 27% of the entire ocean
