MEASUREMENTS IN CHEMISTRY
Convert the following into grams:
a) 0.25 kg
b) 15 kg
c) 100 tonnes
d) 2 tonnes
Convert the following into dm3:
a) 100 cm3
b) 25 cm3
c) 50 m3
d) 50000 cm3
Tip – always use standard form for very large and very small numbers!
What is a mole?
Atoms and molecules are very small – far too small to count individually!
It is important to know how much of something we have, but we count particles in MOLES because you get simpler numbers
1 mole = 6.02 x 1023 particles
(6.02 x 1023 is known as Avogadro’s number)
a) If you have 2.5 x 1021 atoms of magnesium, how many moles do you have?
b) If you have 0.25 moles of carbon dioxide, how many molecules do you have?
How can you work out how many moles you have?
a) From a measurement of MASS:
You can find the number of moles of a substance if you are given its mass and you know its molar mass:
number of moles
Mass MUST be measured in grams!
Molar mass has units of gmol-1
|1. Calculate the number of moles present |2. Calculate the mass of: |3. Calculate the molar mass of the | |in: | |following substances: | |a) 2.3 g of Na |a) 0.05 moles of Cl2 |a) 0.015 moles, 0.42 g | |b) 2.5 g of O2 |b) 0.125 moles of KBr |b) 0.0125 moles, 0.50 g | |c) 240 kg of CO2 |c) 0.075 moles of Ca(OH)2 |c) 0.55 moles, 88 g | |d) 12.5 g of Al(OH)3 |d) 250 moles of Fe2O3 |d) 2.25 moles, 63 g | |e) 5.2 g of PbO2 |e) 0.02 moles of Al2(SO4)3 |e) 0.00125 moles, 0.312 g |
b) From a measurement of AQUEOUS VOLUME:
You can find the number of moles of a substance dissolved in water (aqueous) if you are given the volume of solution and you know its molar concentration:
number of moles
Aqueous volume MUST be measured in dm3!
concentration has units of moldm-3
If you know the molar mass of the substance, you can convert the molar concentration into a mass concentration:
Molar concentration (moldm-3)
mass concentration (gdm-3)
