Problem: If 2.26x1022 atoms of element Y have a mass of 1.50 g, what is the identity of Y?

FREE Expert Solution

An element can be identified through its molecular mass.


 The 
mole is the chemical unit for the amount of a substance and serves as the bridge that connects grams to molecules, atoms, formula units and ions. 


Avogadro’s number gives the value of atoms/particles/ions in each mole. 1 mol is equal to 6.022x1023 number of atoms or particles or ions.
