1. One mole samples of different compounds have different masses because the molar mass of
the compounds are different.
2. A precise estimate of the number of entities in a sample is determined by dividing the mass of
the sample by the molar mass of the substance in the sample. In this way, the mass of the sample
is an indirect way to count the number of entities present.
3. The amount obtained using this equation is always an estimate because mass is a measured
quantity. There is some degree of uncertainty in all measured quantities.
