We are asked to compute how many moles of glucose C6H12Odoes 1.260 x1021 carbon C atoms contain.

To find the number of moles of Glucose C6H12Oin 1.260×1021 carbon C atomsconvert atoms of C to C6H12O6 stoichiometrically then multiply the no. of atoms by Avogadro’s number to convert it to moles.

Given:

       Avogadro's No = 6.022 x 1023 atoms / mole
