The number of anions present in 5g of calcium bromide ( CaBr 2 ) should be calculated. Concept Introduction: Moles of a compound are calculated by dividing the given mass by its molar mass. Moles of a compound = Mass MolarMass According to Avogadro’s number, the number of molecules present in one mole of a compound is 6.023 × 10 23 . Each molecule of an ionic compound dissociates to form ions.
