Earth has a mass of 5.98 × 1024 kg. The average mass of the atoms that make up Earth is 40 u. How many atoms are there in Earth?


Expert Answer

Step 1


Mass of earth, ME = 5.98X1024 kg

Average mass of atom, M = 40 u

1 u = 1.66 X 10-27 kg

Step 2

Using conversion we can calculate the mass of one atom in kg,

mass of one atom, m

Step 3

Number of atom present...
