Avogadro’s number = 6.022 x 1023 entities

                                    entities = atoms, ions, molecules, particles, formula units


Molecular formula: C6H4(CO2H)(CO2CH3)

  • 9 moles C 
  • 8 moles H
  • 4 moles O


Calculate the moles of aspirin:


325 mg C6H4(CO2H)(CO2CH3)×10-3 g1 mg×1 mole  C6H4(CO2H)(CO2CH3)180.16 g  C6H4(CO2H)(CO2CH3)

moles aspirin = 1.80 x 10-3 mol aspirin
