How many atoms of gallium are present in a sample that contains 75.1 grams of gallium?
The molar mass of gallium is 69.72 g/mol
6.49×1023 atoms
2.35×1071 atoms
75.1 atoms
6.99×1023 atoms
5.59×1023 atoms

Expert Answer

Step 1

Number of atoms can be determined by multiplying the number of moles with Avogadro number.  For that number of moles has to be found.
