1 The Mole and Chemical Table of Contents Chemical Formulas Bellringer List as many common counting units as you can. Determine how many groups of each unit in your list are present in each of the following amounts: 500 goldfish 150 unicycles 50 jet planes Objectives Identify the mole as the unit used to count particles, whether atoms, ions, or molecules. Use Avogadro s number to convert between amount in moles and number of particles. Solve problems converting between mass, amount in moles, and number of particles using Avogadro s number and molar mass. Avogadro s Number and the Mole The SI unit for amount is called the mole (mol). A mole is the number of atoms in exactly 12 grams of carbon-12. Scientists use the mole to make counting large numbers of particles easier. The number of particles in a mole is called Avogadro s Number. Avogadro s number is units/mole. Visual Concepts Avogadro s Number and the Mole, continued The Mole Is a Counting Unit The mole is used to count out a given number of particles, whether they are atoms, molecules, formula units, ions, or electrons. The Mole The mole is just one kind of counting unit: 1 dozen = 12 objects 1 hour = 3600 seconds 1 mole = particles

2 Avogadro s Number and the Mole, continued Amount in Moles Can Be Converted to Number of Particles Counting units are used to make conversion factors. The definition of one mole is The conversion factor is particles = 1 mol particles 1mol = 1 Avogadro s Number and the Mole, continued Choose the Conversion Factor That Cancels the Given Units All conversion factors are equal to 1, so you can use them to convert among different units. You can tell which conversion factor to use, because the needed conversion factor should cancel the units of the given quantity to give you the units of the answer or the unknown quantity. Converting Between Amount in Moles and Number of Particles Converting Amount in Moles to Number of Particles Sample Problem A Find the number of molecules in 2.5 mol of sulfur dioxide. Converting Amount in Moles to Number of Particles Sample Problem A Solution 2.5 mol SO 2? =? molecules SO 2 You are converting from the unit mol to the unit molecules. The conversion factor must have the units of molecules/mol. You use molecules/1 mol. Converting Amount in Moles to Number of Particles Sample Problem A Solution, continued 2.5 mol SO 2? =? molecules SO molecules SO2 2.5 mol SO =? molecules SO 1 mol SO mol SO 2 = molecules SO 2

3 Avogadro s Number and the Mole, continued Number of Particles Can Be Converted to Amount in Moles The reverse calculation is similar to that in Sample Problem A but the conversion factor is inverted to get the correct units in the answer. example: How many moles are iron(iii) ions? Converting Number of Particles to Amount in Moles Sample Problem B A sample contains molecules of sulfur dioxide, SO 2. Determine the amount in moles ions Fe 3+ 1molFe ions Fe mol Fe + = Converting Number of Particles to Amount in Moles Sample Problem B Solution Converting Number of Particles to Amount in Moles Sample Problem B Solution, continued molecules SO 2? =? mol SO 2 You are converting from the unit molecules to the unit mol. The conversion factor must have the units of mol/molecules. You use 1 mol/ molecules molecules SO 2? =? mol SO molecules SO 1molSO molecules SO =? mol SO molecules SO 2 = mol SO 2 2 Visual Concepts Molar Mass Relates Moles to Grams Amount in Moles Can Be Converted to Mass The molar mass is the mass in grams of one mole of an element or compound. Molar Mass Molar mass is numerically equal to the atomic mass of monatomic elements and the formula mass of compounds and diatomic elements. The units for molar mass are g/mol. Molar mass can be used as a conversion factor in problems converting between mass and amount.

4 Visual Concepts Molar Mass as a Conversion Factor Molar Mass Relates Moles to Grams, continued The Mole Plays a Central Part in Chemical Conversions To convert from number of particles to mass, you must use a two-part process: First, convert number of particles to amount in moles. Second, convert amount in moles to mass in grams. One step common to many problems in chemistry is converting to amount in moles. Converting Between Mass, Amount, and Number of Particles Converting Number of Particles to Mass Sample Problem C Find the mass in grams of atoms of carbon, whose molar mass is g/mol. Converting Number of Particles to Mass Sample Problem C Solution First part: atoms? =? mol Select the conversion factor that will take you from number of atoms to amount in moles. You use 1 mol/ atoms. Converting Number of Particles to Mass Sample Problem C Solution, continued Second part:? mol? =? g Select the conversion factor that will take you from amount in moles to mass in grams. You use the molar mass of carbon, g C/1 mol.

5 Converting Number of Particles to Mass Sample Problem C Solution, continued 24 1 mol g C atoms atoms 1 mol = 48.7 g C Molar Mass Relates Moles to Grams, continued Mass Can Be Converted to Amount in Moles Converting from mass to number of particles is the reverse of the operation in the previous problem. To convert from mass to number of particles, you must use a two-part process: First, convert mass in grams to amount in moles. Second, convert amount in moles to number of particles. Converting Mass to Number of Particles Sample Problem D Find the number of molecules present in 47.5 g of glycerol, C 3 H 8 O 3. The molar mass of glycerol is g/mol. Converting Mass to Number of Particles Sample Problem D Solution First part: 47.5 g? =? mol Select the conversion factor that will take you from mass in grams to amount in moles. You use the inverse of the molar mass of glycerol: 1mol g C H O Converting Mass to Number of Particles Sample Problem D Solution, continued Second part:? mol? =? molecules Select the conversion factor that will take you from amount in moles to number of particles molecules You use 1mol. Converting Mass to Number of Particles Sample Problem D Solution, continued 23 1 mol molecules 47.5 g C3H8O g C 3 H 8 O 3 1 mol = molecules

6 Molar Mass Relates Moles to Grams, continued Remember to Round Consistently Remember that an answer must never be given to more significant figures than is appropriate. Round molar masses from the periodic table to two significant figures to the right of the decimal point. Bellringer Compare the masses of a roll of pennies and a roll of dimes. Both contain 50 coins. Why are the masses of the rolls different when both rolls contain the same number of coins? If given a roll of mixed coins, what information would you need to determine the mass of the roll? Objectives Use a periodic table or isotopic composition data to determine the average atomic masses of elements. Infer information about a compound from its chemical formula. Determine the molar mass of a compound from its formula. Average Atomic Mass and the Periodic Table Most Elements are a Mixture of Isotopes Isotopes are atoms that have different numbers of neutrons than other atoms of the same element do. Average atomic mass is a weighted average of the atomic mass of an element s isotopes. If you know the abundance of each isotope, you can calculate the average atomic mass of an element. Visual Concepts Average Atomic Mass Calculating Average Atomic Mass Sample Problem E The mass of a Cu-63 atom is amu, and that of a Cu-65 atom is amu. Using the data below, find the average atomic mass of copper. abundance of Cu-63 = 69.17% abundance of Cu-65 = 30.83%

7 Calculating Average Atomic Mass Sample Problem E Solution The contribution of each isotope is equal to its atomic mass multiplied by the fraction of that isotope. contribution of Cu-63: amu contribution of Cu-65: amu Average atomic mass is the sum of the individual contributions: (62.94 amu ) + (64.93 amu ) = amu and Moles Formulas Express A compound s chemical formula tells you which elements, as well as how much of each, are present in a compound. Formulas for covalent compounds show the elements and the number of atoms of each element in a molecule. Formulas for ionic compounds show the simplest ratio of cations and anions in any pure sample. and Moles, continued Formulas Express, continued Any sample of compound has many atoms and ions, and the formula gives a ratio of those atoms or ions. and Moles, continued Formulas Give Ratios of Polyatomic Ions Formulas for polyatomic ions show the simplest ratio of cations and anions. They also show the elements and the number of atoms of each element in each ion. For example, the formula KNO 3 indicates a ratio of one K + cation to one NO 3 anion. Understanding Formulas for Polyatomic Ionic Compounds and Moles, continued Formulas Are Used to Calculate Molar Masses The molar mass of a molecular compound is the sum of the masses of all the atoms in the formula expressed in g/mol. The molar mass of an ionic compound is the sum of the masses of all the atoms in the formula expressed in g/mol.

Calculating Molar Mass of Compounds Sample Problem F Solution Find the # of moles of each element in 1 mol Ba(NO 3 ) 2 : Each mole has 1 mol Ba, 2 mol N, and 6 mol O. Use the periodic table to find the molar mass of each element in the formula: molar mass of Ba: g/mol; molar mass of N: g/mol and molar mass of O: g/mol Calculating Molar Mass of Compounds Sample Problem F Solution, continued Multiply the molar mass of each element by the number of moles of each element. Add these masses to get the total molar mass of Ba(NO 3 ) 2. mass of 1 mol Ba = g/mol = g/mol mass of 2 mol N = g/mol = g/mol + mass of 6 mol O = g/mol = g/mol Bellringer Brainstorm a list of what you know about percentages. molar mass of Ba(NO 3 ) 2 = g/mol

9 Objectives Determine a compound s empirical formula from its percentage composition. Determine the molecular formula or formula unit of a compound from its empirical formula and its formula mass. Calculate percentage composition of a compound from its molecular formula or formula unit. Using Analytical Data The percentage composition is the percentage by mass of each element in a compound. Percentage composition helps verify a substance s identity. Percentage composition also can be used to compare the ratio of masses contributed by the elements in two different substances. Percentage of Iron Oxides Using Analytical Data, continued Determining Empirical Formulas An empirical formula is a chemical formula that shows the simplest ratio for the relative numbers and kinds of atoms in a compound. An actual formula shows the actual ratio of elements or ions in a single unit of a compound. For example, the empirical formula for ammonium nitrate is NH 2 O, while the actual formula is NH 4 NO 2. Empirical and Actual Formulas Using Analytical Data, continued Determining Empirical Formulas, continued You can use the percentage composition for a compound to determine its empirical formula. 1.

Answer: amu Reading Skills Read the passage below. Then answer the questions. In 1800 two English chemists, Nicholson and Carlisle, discovered that when an electric current is passed through water, hydrogen and oxygen were produced in a 2:1 volume ratio and a 1:8 mass ratio. This evidence helped to support John Dalton's theory that matter consisted of atoms, demonstrating that water consists of the two elements in a constant proportion. If the same number of moles of each gas occupy the same volume, then each molecule of water must consist of twice as much hydrogen as oxygen, even though the mass of hydrogen is only one-eighth that of oxygen.
