It is very inconvenient to write this. Instead, use scientific notation:

6.022 × 1023

In chemistry, must deal with several mathematical functions.

• Calculators:
• Sharp & Casio Type in 6.022
• Press the exponential function [EXP]
• Key in 23
Questions

How would you write the following:

7.84 × 108

2.3 × 10-4

2. Logarithms
• Makes dealing with a wide range of numbers more convenient, especially pH
• Two types: common logarithms and natural logarithms
• Common Logarithms
• Common log of x is denoted log x
• gives the power to which 10 must be raised to equal x
• 10n = x
• written as: log10x = n (base 10 is not always specified)

Example:

The common log of 1000 is 3, i.e. 10 must be raised to the power of 3 to get 1000

Written as: log101000 = 3

103 = 1000

• the difference here is, instead of base 10, we have base e (where e = 2.71828)
• Gives the power to which e must be raised to equal x
• lnx or logex = n or en = x

Example

3. Graphs
• Experimental data often represented in graph form, especially in straight lines
• Equation of straight line given by

y = mx + c

where x and y are the axes values

m is the slope of the graph

c is the intercept of the plot

y- axis

Slope

Intercept

x-axis

Sign of slope tells you the direction of the line
• Magnitude of slope tells you steepness of line
• Slope found by taking two x values and the two corresponding y values and substituting these into the following relation:

Example

Given the (x, y) coordinates (2, 4) and (5, 9), find the slope of the line containing these two points.

x1 = 2 y1 = 4

x2 = 5 y2 = 9

Sub into above relation: m = 9 – 4 = 5 = 1.67

5 – 2 3

• May be encountered when dealing with concentrations
• Involve x2 (x-squared terms)
• Take the form ax2 + bx + c = 0
• Can be solved by:
• this expression finds the roots or the solution for x of the quadratic equation

Example:

Find the roots of the equation x2 – 6x + 8 = 0

ax2 + bx + c = 0

a = 1

b = -6

c = 8

x =

x =

x =

=

= 2

or

= 4

Therefore, x =

Question

x = [H3O+]

The following quadratic equation has been given Solve for x.

2.4x2 + 1.5x – 3.6 = 0

You have been asked to calculate the concentration of [H3O+] ions in a

chemical reaction.

Therefore

or

x = 0.95 or x = -1.58

Because we are dealing with concentrations, a negative value will not make sense. Therefore, we report the positive x value, 0.95, as our answer. Never round up this number!

Calculations: The Mole
• Stoichiometry is the study of quantitative aspects of chemical

formulas and reactions

• Mole: SI unit of the amount of a substance

Definition: A mole is the number of atoms in exactly 12g of the

carbon-12 isotope

This number is called Avogadro’s number and is given by 6.022 ×1023

The mole is NOT just a counting unit, like the dozen, which specifies only the number of objects. The definition of a mole specifies the number of objects in a fixed mass of substance.

Mass spectrometry tells us that the mass of a carbon-12 atom is

1.9926×10-23g.

No. of carbon-12 atoms = atomic mass (g)

mass of one atom (g)

= 12g _

1.9926×10-23g

= 6.022 ×1023 atoms

Other definitions of the Mole
• One mole contains Avogadro’s Number (6.022 x 1023)
• A mole is the amount of a substance of a system which contains as many elementary entities as there are atoms in 0.012kg (or12g) of Carbon-12
• A mole is that quantity of a substance whose mass in grams is the same as its formula weight
• E.g. Fe55.85
• Iron has an atomic mass or 55.85g mol-1, so one mole of iron has a mass or 55.85g

One mole of any object always means 6.022 × 1023units of those objects.For example, 1 mol of H2Ocontains 6.022 × 1023 molecules 1 mol of NaCl contains 6.022 × 1023 formula units

Calculating the number of particles

Avogadro’s number is used to convert between the number of

moles and the number of atoms, ions or molecules.

Example

0.450mol of iron contains how many atoms?

Number of atoms = number of moles × Avogadro’s number (NA)

Therefore No. of atoms = (0.450mol) × (6.022 × 1023)

= 2.7 × 1023 atoms

Example

No. of molecules = no. of moles × Avogadro’s number (NA)

= 4mol × (6.022 × 1023 mol-1)

How many molecules are there in 4 moles of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)?

= 24 ×1023 molecules

= 2.4 × 1024 molecules

Questions

How many atoms are there in 7.2 moles of gold (Au)?

The visible universe is estimated to contain 1022 stars. How many moles of stars are there?

Answer: 1022 stars = 1022 = 0.17 mol.

6.022×1023

Calculating the mass of one molecule

Step 1: Calculate the molar mass of water

Example: What is the mass of one molecule of water?

Molar mass of water = (2 × atomic mass H) + (1 × atomic mass O)

Molar mass H2O = (2 × 1.008g mol-1) + (1 ×16.000g mol-1)

= 18.00 g mol-1

Mass of one molecule = Molar mass

= 18.00g mol-1 6.022×1023mol-1

= 2.992×10-23g

Note: Always check the units you have in your answer to ensure you are correct

2 × 14.01gmol-1

8 × 1.008 gmol-1

1 ×12.01gmol-1

3 × 16.00 gmol-1

4.89 × 10-22 g

Converting between mass and moles

In the lab, we measure the mass of our reactants in grams using a

balance. However, when these react they do so in a ratio of moles.

Therefore, we need to convert between the mass we measure and the

number of moles we require.

The expression relating mass and number of moles is:

Mass of sample (g) = no. of moles (mol) × molar mass (gmol-1)

Example

Calculate the mass in grams in 0.75mol of sodium hydroxide, NaOH

Step 1: Find the molar mass of the compound

Na: 22.99 gmol-1

Mr: 40.00 gmol-1

O: 16.00 gmol-1

H: 1.008 gmol-1

Step 2: Substitute into the above expression

Mass of sample =

0.75mol × 40.00 gmol-1

= 30g

Questions

Answer: Molar mass KMnO4 = 158.03 gmol-1

Calculate the mass in grams present in:

Mass in grams = 0.57mol × 158.03 gmol-1

= 90.07 g

(b) 1.16mol of oxalic acid (H2C2O4)

Answer: Molar mass H2C2O4 = 90.04 gmol-1

Mass in grams = 1.16mol × 90.04 gmol-1

= 104.44 g

(c) 2.36mol of calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)2)

Answer: Molar mass Ca(OH)2 = 74.1 gmol-1

Mass in grams = 2.36mol × 74.1 gmol-1

= 174.87 g

Converting between moles and mass

Answer: Molar mass silver chloride = 143.38 gmol-1

2.00g AgCl = 0.014mol

Important formulae so far….

Defining the mole:

No. of carbon-12 atoms = atomic mass (g)

mass of one atom (g)

Calculating the number of atoms or molecules, given the number of moles:

Number of moles = mass of sample (g)

molar mass (gmol-1)

No. of atoms = No. of moles × Avogadro’s number (NA)

No. of molecules = No. of moles × Avogadro’s number (NA)

Calculating the mass of an individual molecule:

Mass of one molecule = Molar mass

Most important equation:

Mass of sample (g) = no. of moles (mol) × molar mass (gmol-1)

Calculating mass percentage from a chemical formula

A chemical formula of a compound tells you the composition of that compound in terms of the number of atoms of each element present.

Many of the elements in the periodic table of the elements occur in

combination with other elements to form compounds.

The mass percentage composition allows you to determine the fraction of the total mass each element contributes to the compound.

Example

Ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3) is an important compound in the fertiliser industry. What is the mass % composition of ammonium nitrate?

Step 1: Calculate the molar mass of ammonium nitrate

Two N atoms: 28.016 gmol-1

Four H atoms: 4.032 gmol-1

Three O atoms: 48.00 gmol-1

Molar mass NH4NO3 = 80.05 gmol-1

Step 2: Determine the mass % composition for each element

Mass fraction of N = 28.016g

80.05g

Nitrogen: 28.016g N in one mol of ammonium nitrate

Mass % composition of N = 28.016g× 100%

80.05g

= 34.99% ≈ 35%

Hydrogen: 4.032g H in one mol of ammonium nitrate

Mass fraction of N = 4.032g

80.05g

Mass % composition of H = 4.032g× 100%

80.05g

= 5.04% ≈ 5%

Oxygen: 48.00g O in one mol of ammonium nitrate

As above, the mass % composition of O is found to be 60%

% Nitrogen: 35%

% Hydrogen: 5%

% Oxygen: 60%

Question

What is the mass % composition of C12H22O11?

% Hydrogen: 6.5%

% Oxygen: 51.4%

Determining empirical formula from mass

The empirical formula of a compound tells you the relative number of

atoms of each element present in that compound. It gives you the

simplest ratio of the elements in the compound.

For example, the empirical formula of glucose (C6H12O6) is CH2O, giving the C:H:O ratio of 1:2:1

If you know the mass % composition and the molar mass of elements present in a compound, you can work out the empirical formula

Example

What is the empirical formula of a compound which has a mass % composition of 50.05% S and 49.95% O?

Step 1: Find the atomic masses of the elements present

Sulfur (S) : 32.066 gmol-1

Oxygen (O) : 16.000 gmol-1

Therefore, 100g of our compound contains 50.05g of sulfur and 49.95g of oxygen.

Since we are dealing with percentages, we can express the mass % as

grams if we assume we have 100g of the compound.

Convert number of grams to number of moles

Number of mol Sulfur = mass of sulfur in sample (g)

atomic mass of sulfur (gmol-1)

= 50.05g .

32.066 gmol-1

= 1.56 mol

Similarly, the no. of mol of Oxygen is found to be 3.12mol

Step 3: Determining the ratios of elements

Sulfur: 1.56mol

Oxygen: 3.12mol

Ratio 1.56 : 3.12

Ratio must be in whole numbers. Here we must divide across by 1.56

Therefore, we have a ratio of 1:2 giving an empirical formula of SO2

Question

Answer: No. of mol Carbon = 2.27mol

No. of mol Oxygen = 4.54mol

Ratio 1:2 Empirical formula CO2

Determine the empirical formula of a compound that contains 27.3

mass% Carbon and 72.7 mass% Oxygen.

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) has the following mass percentage composition: 35.51% C, 4.77 % H, 37.85% O, 8.29% N, and 13.60% Na. What is its molecular formula if its molar mass is 169 gmol-1?

Important calculations

Calculating mass percentage from a chemical formula

• Step 1: Calculate the molar mass
• Step 2: Determine the mass % composition for each element

Determining empirical formula from mass

• Step 1: Find the atomic masses of the elements present
• Step 2: Determine the number of moles of each element present
• Step 3: Determining the ratios of elements
Molarity

The concentration of a solution is the amount of solute present in a given quantity of solvent or solution

Some chemical reactions involve aqueous solutions of reactants

This concentration may be expressed in terms of molarity (M) or molar concentration:

M = Molarity = no. of moles

volume in Litres

Molarity is the number of moles of solute in 1 Litre (L) of solution

Example

What is molarity of an 85.0mL ethanol (C2H5OH) solution containing 1.77g of ethanol?

Molar mass of ethanol, C2H5OH:

Step 1: Determine the number of moles of ethanol

2 × carbon atoms

2 × 12.01 gmol-1

24.02 gmol-1

1 × oxygen atom

1 × 16.00 gmol-1

16.00 gmol-1

6 × hydrogen atoms

6 × 1.008 gmol-1

6.048 gmol-1

46.07 gmol-1

No. of moles = mass in g

molar mass

No. of moles ethanol = 1.77g .

46.07 gmol-1

= 0.038 mol

Step 2: Convert to molarity

1 L = 1000mL

 Have 0.085 L of ethanol

Have 85.0mL ethanol

Molarity = no. of moles

volume in L

= 0.038 mol

0.085 L

= 0.45 molL-1

≡ 0.45 M

Questions

Calculate the molarities of each of the following solutions:

(a) 2.357g of sodium chloride (NaCl) in 75mL solution

(b) 1.567mol of silver nitrate (AgNO3) in 250mL solution

(c) 10.4g of calcium chloride (CaCl2) in 2.20 × 102 mL of solution

Example

An antacid tablet is not pure CaCO3; it contains starch, flavouring, etc.

If it takes 41.3mL of 0.206 M HCl to react with all the CaCO3 in one

tablet, how many grams of CaCO3 are in the tablet. You are given the

following balanced equation:

2HCl(aq) + CaCO3(s) CaCl2(aq) + H2O(l) + CO2(g)

Step 1: Determine the no. of moles of HCl that react

Have 0.206 M HCl solution  have 0.206 mol in one litre

Have 41.3 mL of HCl solution  have 0.0413 L of HCl solution

Molarity = no. of moles

volume in L

 no. of moles = Molarity × volume in L

= 0.206 molL-1× 0.0413L

= 0.0085 mol

≡ 8.5 × 10-3 mol HCl

Step 2: Determine no. of moles of CaCO3 used in the reaction

From the balanced equation, we can see that 2 moles of HCl are required to react with one mole of CaCO3

Therefore, if 8.5 × 10-3 mol of HCl are present in the reaction, we must have 4.25 × 10-3 mol of CaCO3 present.

2HCl(aq) + CaCO3(s)  CaCl2(aq) + H2O(l) + CO2(g)

Molar mass of CaCO3:

40.08 gmol-1

1 × calcium atom

 Mass in g = no. of mols × molar mass

= (4.25 × 10-3 mol) × (100 gmol-1)

= 0.425 g CaCO3 present in tablet
