We’re being asked to calculate the number of carbon atoms in .650 gram tablet of aspirin (C9H8O4).
We can calculate the number of carbon atoms using the following steps:
mass C9H8O4 (molar mass) → moles C9H8O4 (mole-to-mole comparison) → moles C (Avogadro’s number) → atoms C
How many carbon atoms are in .650 gram tablet of aspirin (C9H8O4)?
