## The Mole

Q: how long would it take to spend a mole of \$1 coins if they were being spent at a rate of 1 billion per second?

### Background: atomic masses

• Look at the “atomic masses” on the periodic table. What do these represent?

• E.g. the atomic mass of C is 12 (atomic # is 6)

• We know there are 6 protons and 6 neutrons

• Protons and neutrons have roughly the same mass. So, C weighs 12 u (atomic mass units).

• What is the actual mass of a C atom?

• Answer: approx. 2 x 10-23 grams (protons and neutrons each weigh about 1.7 x10-24 grams)

Two problems

• Atomic masses do not convert easily to grams

• They can’t be weighed (they are too small)

### The Mole

Withtheseproblems,whyuseatomicmassatall?

• Masses give information about # of p+, n0, e–

• It is useful to know relative mass

E.g. Q - What ratio is needed to make H2O?

A - 2:1 by atoms, but 2:16 by mass

• It is useful to associate atomic mass with a mass in grams. It has been found that

1gH,12gC,or 23gNahave6.02x1023atoms

• 6.02 x 1023 is a “mole” or “Avogadro’s number”

• “mol” is used in equations, “mole” is used in writing; one gram = 1 g, one mole = 1 mol.

• Read 4.3 (167-9). Stop after text beside fig 2.

• Do Q1-6. Challenge: 1st slide (use reasonable units)

• A mole is a number (like a dozen). Having this number of atoms allows us to easily convert atomic masses to molar masses.

• 6.02x1023

• 602 000 000 000 000 000 000 000

• 3.00 x 6.02x1023 = 18.06x1023 or 1.81x1024

(note: there are 3 moles of atoms in one mole of CO2 molecules. In other words, there are 5.42x1024 atoms in 3.00 mol CO2)

• 3.01x1023

• a) 1.43 kg  12 = 0.119 kg per orange

b) 1.01 g  6.02x1023 = 1.68 x 10–24 g

### Mollionaire

Q: how long would it take to spend a mole of \$1 coins if they were being spent at a rate of 1 billion per second?

A: \$ 6.02 x 1023 / \$1 000 000 000

= 6.02 x 1014 payments = 6.02 x 1014 seconds

6.02 x 1014 seconds / 60 = 1.003 x 1013 minutes

1.003 x 1013 minutes / 60 = 1.672 x 1011 hours

1.672 x 1011 hours / 24 = 6.968 x 109 days

6.968 x 109 days / 365.25 = 1.908 x 107 years

A: It would take 19 million years

### Molar mass

• The mass of one mole is called “molar mass”

• E.g. 1 mol Li = 6.94 g Li

• This is expressed as 6.94 g/mol

• What are the following molar masses?

### Converting between grams and moles

• If we are given the # of grams of a compound we can determine the # of moles, & vise-versa

• In order to convert from one to the other you must first calculate molar mass

g = mol x g/mol

mol = g  g/mol

### Simplest and molecular formulae

Consider NaCl (ionic) vs. H2O2 (covalent)

• Chemical formulas are either “simplest” (a.k.a. “empirical”) or “molecular”. Ionic compounds are always expressed as simplest formulas.

• Covalent compounds can either be molecular formulas (I.e. H2O2) or simplest (e.g. HO)

• Q - Write simplest formulas for propene (C3H6),

• C2H2, glucose (C6H12O6), octane (C8H14)

• Q - Identify these as simplest formula, molecular

• formula, or both H2O, C4H10, CH, NaCl

Q - Identify these as simplest formula, molecular

formula, or both H2O, C4H10, CH, NaCl

A - CH2

A - H2O is both simplest and molecular

C4H10 is molecular (C2H5 would be simplest)

CH is simplest (not molecular since CH can’t form a molecule - recall Lewis diagrams)

NaCl is simplest (it’s ionic, thus it doesn’t form molecules; it has no molecular formula)
