mg Freon-12 (conversion factor) → g Freon-12(molar mass Freon-12) → mol Freon-12
= 4.5985x10-5 mol CCl2F2
mol Freon-12 (Avogadro’s number) → molecules Freon-12
Freon-12 (CCl2F2) is used as a refrigerant in air conditioners and as a propellant in aerosol cans. Calculate the number of molecules of Freon-12 in 5.56 mg of Freon-12. What is the mass of chlorine in 5.56 mg of Freon-12?
