1. ## Atoms to Grams

Hi, sry again -_- but i have yet another question.. what am i doing wrong!?

im trying to convert Atoms to Grams. EXample

1.0×1023

so im doing

(1.0×1023 )(1/6.022x10^23)(196.
96655)=3.3g (putting it to 2 sig figs.)

same thing for 2.80×1022

im doing (2.80×1022 )(1/6.022x10^23)(4.002602)=1.9

______________________________

last but not least can you guys help me get an idea of how to do this problem i think i know how but want to verify.

How many helium atoms are there in a helium blimp containing 535 of helium?

so i would start off by puting 535 into grams (535000g)then divide by molar mass then multiply by avogadro = atoms (8.0*10^28)

I'd use the mole as an intermediate step, that is divide by Avogadro's constant and then by the relative atomic mass.

$\displaystyle \text { moles of gold} = \frac{10^{23}}{6.02 \times 10^{23}} = \frac{1}{6.02}$

$\displaystyle m = n\,A_r = \frac{1}{6.02} \times 197 = 32.72 \text{ g }$

You appear to be an order of magnitude out by my answers, check your powers of 10?
--------------------------

2. Yep

3. 1) I see what you did for the 1st problem, but i cant seem to use that method when doing

7.4×1021 or 2.80×1022

2) Also is the answer going to be 8 atoms or the 8.049x10^24?? (because i would have to round this to 4 sig figs since the 6.022 is 4 sig figs and since im dividing with if that makes sense?
