averaging the mass of similar objects
Averaging the Mass of Similar Objects
  • Avg mass = total mass
  • Objects do not need to have identical masses to be counted by weighing.
  • We simply need to know the avg. mass of the objecs.

# of object

averaging the mass of different objects
Averaging the Mass of Different Objects
  • 2 samples containing different types of components, A & B, both contain the same # of components if the ratio of the sample masses is the same as the ratio of the masses of the individual components

You have M&M’s and Jolly Ranchers

  • M&M’s avg. mass of 5g
  • Jolly Ranchers avg. mass of 15g

You scoop the M&M’s on to the scale and it reads 500g. What mass of Jolly Ranchers do you need to give the same number of Jolly Ranchers as there are M&M’s in 500g of M&M’s

Avg. mass of Jolly Ranchers = 15g = 3

Avg. mass of M&M’s 5g

3 x 500g = 1500g

This means you must weigh out an amount of Jolly Ranchers that is 3x the mass of M&M’s.

atomic masses counting atoms by weighing
Atomic Masses: Counting Atoms by Weighing
  • To count atoms by weighing, we need to know the mass of individual atoms
  • Instead of measuring each isotope we use the average atomic mass

Example – Imagine you have a pile of 1000 natural carbon atom

Mass of 1000 C.Atoms = (1000 atoms)12.01 amu

1 c.atom

12,010 amu = 1000 x 12.01 amu

1.201 x 104amu

using mass to count atoms
Using Mass to Count Atoms
  • Example

Measured mass of carbons – 3.00 x 1020

Avg. atomic mass – 12.01 amu

Conversion factor – 1 carbon

12.01 amu

3.00 x 1020 amu x 1 carbon = 2.50 x 1019

12.01 amu




masses with the same number of atoms
Masses with the Same Number of Atoms
  • If you take 2 different elements with the same number of atoms you will have 2 different masses due to the fact that atomic masses of atoms are different in different elements

Ex.-- 26.98 g of aluminum has the same number of atoms as 63.55 g copper

defining the mole
Defining the Mole
  • A mole is the number equal to the number of carbon atoms in 12.01 grams of carbon.
  • One mole is equal to 6.022 x 1023 units.
  • That amount is also known as Avagrado\'s number.
using the mole
Using the Mole
  • The mole is used to measure how much mass is in 6.022 x 10^23 atoms of a certain element.

Ex. 1 mol of aluminum is 26.98 g

-The mole can be used to determine the amount of atoms of a set amount of mass.

The conversion factor is 6.022 x 10^23

1 mol __ atoms

Ex. to determine the amount of atoms in 0.496 mol H atoms we use

0.496 mol H atoms x 6.022 x 10^23 H atoms = 2.99 x 10^23

1 mol H atoms

molar mass
Molar Mass
  • Chemical Compound- a collection of atoms
  • Molar Mass-The mass in grams of 1 mole of substance.
  • The molar mass is obtained by finding the sum of the mass of the component atoms.
example 1 problem 1
Molar mass (SO2)→? g/mol

Atomic Masses

S= 32.07 g/mol

O= 16.00 g/mol

Molar Mass (CaCO3) → ? g/mol

Atomic Masses

Ca= 40.08 g/mol

C= 12.01 g/mol

O= 16.00 g/mol

Example 1 Problem 1

To find the mass fraction fro a given element, you use this equation:

Mass Fraction for a given element

Mass of the element present in 1 mol of compound


Mass of 1 mol of compound

e.g. Calculate the mass of each element in C2H5OH and the molar mass.

Mass of C= 2 mol x 12.01 g/mol = 24.02 g

Mass of H= 6 mol x 1.008 g/mol = 6.048 g

Mass of O= 1 mol x 16.00 g/mol = 16.00 g

Mass of 1 mol of C2H5OH = 46.07g

Mass Percent (aka weight percent): the percent by mass of a component of a mixture or of a given element in a compound.
  • e.g. Find the mass percent of C

Mass percent of C= Mass of C in 1 mol C2H5OH

X 100%

Mass of 1 mol C2H5OH

= 24.02 g

X 100% = 52.14%


formulas of compounds
Formulas of Compounds
  • To change masses to number of mol, use this formula (that I had to make).
  • Mass of Element in sample (1 mol E atoms)= X mol E Atoms

Atomic #

  • Ex: .2015g Sample with .0806 g of Carbon, .01353g of Hydrogen, and .1074g of Oxygen.
  • .0806( 1 )= .00671 mol C atoms


  • As you can see, the variable E stands for any element on the periodic table. The answer X is the number of mol atoms.
  • To Convert Mol Atoms  Atoms
  • (X mol E atoms)(Avogadro’s Number)= E atoms
  • Ex: (.00671)(6.022 x 1023)= 4.04 x 1021 C atoms
empirical molecular formulas
Empirical & Molecular Formulas
  • Empirical- The actual formula of a compound that expresses the smallest whole number ratio present.
  • Molecular- The actual formula of a compound, the one that gives the composition of the molecules present.
  • Ex: C4H8O4 = Empirical Formula of CH20
  • Ex: Glucose = Molecular Formula of C6H12O6
calculation of empirical formulas
Calculation of Empirical Formulas
  • It is important to find the chemical formula of a substance. By using a sample of a pure element found in the compound, you can find the ratio/chemical formula.
  • Subtract the mass of the pure substance from the compound to find the mass of the other element present in the substance. Multiply these respective mass by 1/Atomic number and .2636Ni x 1/58.69=.004491=4491/449=more or less

Therefore in the compound NiO you have one Ni for each O.

  • The emperical formula of Nickel Oxide is NiO.
  • For a binary compound, We do the same thin
