The chemical 5-amino-2,3-dihydro-1,4-phthalazinedione, better known as luminol, is used by forensic scientists in analyzing crime scenes for the presence of washed-away blood. Luminol is so sensitive that it can detect blood that has been diluted 10,000 times. A basic solution of luminol is often sprayed onto surfaces that are suspected of containing minute amounts of blood. Luminol has a molecular weight of 177 g/mol. Before investigating the scene, the technician must dilute the luminol solution to a concentration of 6.00 x 10-2 M. The dilute solution is then placed in a spray bottle for application on the desired surfaces. How many moles of luminol are present in 2.00 L of the diluted spray?
