## How many moles are there in each sample?a. 55.0 g Tib. 16.9 mg Nac. 7 .95  ×  10 24 Ne atomsd. 25 Xe atoms

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The number of moles present in each sample is to be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

Mole is the unit of the amount of a substance. It relates the number of particles to the molar mass.

One mole of a substance contains Avogadro number (6.022×1023) of particles. The number remains constant regardless of the nature of the substance. One mole of an atom contains 6.022×1023 atoms. One mole of a molecule contains molecules.

It also relates to the molar mass of substance in grams. The weight of one mole of a substance is equivalent to its molar mass in grams.

To sum up, 1 mole of a substance contains 6.022×1023 particles and weighs the same as its molar mass in grams

### Explanation of Solution

a) 55 g Ti

The calculation for the moles of Ti is as follows:

Molar mass of Ti is 41.88 g.

Number of moles=given massmolar mass

Substitute the values in the above equation:

Hence, the number of moles in Ti is 1.15 mol.

b)16.9 mg Na

Conversion of the mass of Na from mg to g is as follows:

Mass of Na = 16.9 mg1000 mg = 1 g

The number of moles of Na is calculated as follows:

Molar mass of Na is 23 g.

Number of moles=given massmolar mass

Substitute the values in the above equation:
