RELATIVE ATOMIC MASS (R.A.M)

Relative mass of an atom =
Mass of an atom of the element
1/12 of the mass of one atom carbon-12

Why carbon-12 is used as a standard?

Its mass can be more easily measured with a mass
spectrometer
Mass of an atom of the element
1/12 of the mass of one atom carbon-12
Eg.
RAM of Mg =

RAM of Pb =
24
1/12 x 12
207
1/12 x 12
= 24
= 207

THE MOLE AND THE NUMBER OF
PARTICLES



In our daily lives, we need to count the amount of
objects
Pairs and dozen are examples of units that we used
In chemistry, we use the unit of mole to measure the
amount of substances.
1 pair of shoes = 2 shoes
1 dozen of eggs = 12 eggs
1 mole of carbon = 6.02 x 1023 atoms


1 mole of any element contains 6.02 x 1023 atoms.
The value of 6.02 x 1023 atoms is called as
Avogadro’s constant
AVOGADRO’S CONSTANT = 6.02 x 1023

Key:
1 mole of atom = 6.02 x 1023 particles

Determined The Number Of Particles
Number of particles = moles x 6.02 x 1023

1.
How many atoms are there in:
0.5 moles of carbon
0.5 x 6.02 x 1023 = 3.01 x 1023 atoms
2.
1.2 moles of sodium
1.2 x 6.02 x 1023 = 7.224 x 1023 atoms
Determined The Number Of Moles From
The Number Of Atoms
Number of moles of atoms = Number of atoms
6.02 x 1023

1.
How many moles are there in:
12.04 x 1023 atoms of chlorine
12.04 x 1023 / 6.02 x 1023 = 2 moles
2.
1.02 x 1046 atoms of sodium
1.02 x 1046 / 6.02 x 1023 = 1.69 x 1023 moles

4.26 g
Moles
1.6 g / 40 = 0.04
4.26 / 35.5 = 0.12
Simplest ration
0.04 / 0.04 = 1
0.12 / 0.04 = 3

So, empirical formula = CaCl3
Molecular formula


Shows the actual number of atoms of elements
that combine to form the compound.
(Empirical formula)n = Relative molecular mass
Eg:
Relative molecular mass of CaCl3 is 293
(CaCl3) n = 293
(40+ (3x35.5)) n = 293
(146.5) n = 293
n=2
So, molecular formula is (CaCl3) n = (CaCl3) 2
= Ca2Cl6
