Find the number of atoms of phosphorus in 3.44 moles of phosphorus P .

Home >> Practice Problems
Explanation: 

To find the number of atoms in the given moles of the element follow the following steps:

Step 1 : Use the avogadro number to convert the moles to atoms.We know that 1 mole of any atom ,compound,formula unit has 6.02 x 1023 atom,compound or formula unit .In the problem given here there are there are 3.44 moles of P atom .

1 mole of P atom = 6.02 x 1023 atoms of P

Step 2 : How many atoms will be in 3.44 moles of phosphorus.Use the formula

Given x conversion factor

(given is the condition given in the problem and A conversion factor is a ratio (or fraction) which represents the relationship between two different units) .

3.44 moles of P x 6 .02 x 1023 atoms of P / 1 mole of P atoms = 2.07 x 10 24  atoms of P

Answer: 

2.07 x 10 24  atoms of P
