The molar mass of sulfuric acid is:
C9H8O4 → 180.16 g/mol
1 mol C9H8O4 = 6.022x1023 C9H8O4 molecules
The molecular formula of acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin), one of the most common pain relievers, is C9H8O4.
How many moles of C9H8O4 are in a 0.500-g tablet of aspirin? Assume the tablet is composed entirely of aspirin.
How many carbon atoms are in the tablet?
