Atomic Molar Mass - Prairie Spirit Blogs

What is a mole?
The Mole
Chemists use a measurement called ‘the mole’
A mole is like a dozen eggs= 12 eggs or a pair of shoes= 2 shoes
However, the mole is a very large number
This is because atoms are so small that chemists need a lot to be able to find their mass
How big is the mole??
A mole contains 6.023 x 1023 of anything
6.023 x 1023 is a.k.a AVOGADRO’S NUMBER
How big is a mole exactly?
 If you could count 10 million numbers every second, it would take you 2 billion years to count
an avogadro’s number out
 If you had a mole of unpopped popcorn kernals it would cover the entire planet to a depth of
9 miles
 If you poured out a mole number of cans of pop out you would cover the entire earth with an
ocean of pop 200 miles deep
1 mole= 6.023 x 1023 particles or
6.023 x 1023 particles/mol
 1 mole Cl= 6.023 x 1023 particles
 1 mole of H= 6.023 x 1023 particles
2 moles=
Atomic Molar Mass
The mass (in grams) of 1 mole of a given element
To find this for each element you must look at the periodic table:
1 mole of C= 12 g (or 12g/mol)
What is the mass of 1 mole of oxygen?
What about 2 moles of oxygen?
3 moles?
Molecular Molar Mass
Is the mass (in grams) of all the elements in the molecule
To find the mass: 1. find each element’s atomic mass and 2. add all of the atomic masses together
Ex NaOH:
Na= 1 x 23 g/mol
O= 1x 16 g/mol
H= 1 x 1g/mol
40 g/mol of NaOH
Ex H2O
Ex. H2SO4
Find the following masses
MgBr2, Ga(NO2)3, CrI2, BeSO4
Assignment: molar mass worksheet
Given two out of these three values for mass, moles and/or molar mass, you can figure out the value of
the missing value
Mass= moles x molar mass
Moles= mass/molar mass
Molar mass- find using periodic table
Particles= moles x 6.023 x 1023
