PART 1

We are asked to determine how many atoms are there per cubic centimeter of Cr given the density. 

We basically need to convert g → atoms. 

When doing unit conversions:

 Put units you need to cancel out on opposite places (if it’s in the numerator then put the conversion factor with the same unit in the denominator)

 always raise the units to the necessary number especially when dealing with volume, area, etc.
