Problem: Determine the number of moles of compound and the number of moles of each type of atom in each of the following:(a) 25.0 g of propylene, C3H6 

FREE Expert Solution

For this problem, we have to calculate the number of moles of compound and the number of moles of each type of atom in 25 g propylene

C36       3 C × 12.01 g/mol C = 36.03 g/mol
               6 H × 1.01 g/mol H = 6.06 g/mol
                Sum 
42.09 g/mol
