The Mole

Chapter 11

counting units

Particles Names

Atoms, formula units (ionic compounds), molecules (covalent compounds)

Counting units

1mole = 6.02 x 1023 particles

mole to particle conversions
Mole to Particle Conversions

How many molecules of water are there in 2.4 moles of water?

How many moles of copper contain 3.5 x 1018 copper atoms?

volume and the mole
Volume and the Mole

According to Avogadro, the mass of one mole of a gas at STP is always 22.4L regardless of the gas’ identity.

STP = Standard Temperature and Pressure (0oC and 1 atmosphere)

mass and the mole
Mass and the Mole

The mass of one mole of a substance is unique to that substance and is based on the sum of the atomic masses of the elements in that substance.

1 mole of copper = 63.6g

1 mole of lead = 207.2g

1 mole of water = 18.0g

Mass of H2O = mass of two hydrogen atoms + mass of one oxygen atom

percent composition by mass
Percent Composition by Mass

Sum of the product of the number of each atom and their masses divided by the total mass of the compound

What is the percent composition of Mg(BrO4)2?

1(mass Mg) + 2(mass of Br) + 8(mass of oxygen) = Mass of Mg(BrO4)2

empirical formula
Empirical Formula

Chemical formula which contains the lowest whole number ratio of atoms

Ionic formulas always contain the lowest whole number ratios

Covalent compounds do not always contain the lowest whole number ratios

What is the Empirical Formula of the following compounds?




determining the empirical formula of a compound
Determining the Empirical Formula of a Compound


What is the empirical formula for a compound which contains 25.9% nitrogen and 74.1% oxygen by mass?

Assume a 100g sample. In that sample 25.9 g is nitrogen and 74.1g is oxygen

  • Covert % to mass (if needed)
  • Convert mass to moles
  • Divide each molar quantity by the lowest number of moles
  • Multiply by the smallest number needed to create a whole number ratio (if needed)





which of the following are empirical formulas and which represent molecular formulas
Which of the following are empirical formulas and which represent molecular formulas?







simple molecular problems
Simple Molecular Problems

What is the molecular formula of a compound with an empirical formula of CH2O and a molecular mass of 90g/mol?

  • Determine the empirical mass
  • Divide the molecular mass by the empirical mass to determine how much larger the mass of the molecule is compared to the empirical formula
  • Multiple the subscripts of each element in the empirical formula by the factor determined in #2

CH2O =1(12g)+2(1g)+1(16g) = 30g



longer molecular problems
Longer Molecular Problems
  • Determine the molecular formula
  • Given the molecular mass, determine the molecular formula

Determine the molecular formula of a compound that has a mass of 34g and contains 94.1% oxygen and 5.9% hydrogen by mass.
