The Mole• A counting unit• Similar to a dozen (12), except instead of 12, it’s 602 billion trillion 602,000,000,000,000,000,000,000• 6.02 X 1023 (in scientific notation)• This number is named in honor of Amedeo Avagadro (1776 – 1856), who studied quantities of gases and discovered that no matter what the gas was, there were the same number of molecules present
Mole• A mole is just a number. Just like..... a pair = 2 a trio = 3 a quartet = 4 a dozen = 12 a mole = (mol) 602000000000000000000000
4Just How Big is a Mole? • Enough soft drink cans to cover the surface of the earth to a depth of over 200 miles. • If you had Avogadros number of unpopped popcorn kernels, and spread them across the United States of America, the country would be covered in popcorn to a depth of over 9 miles. • If we were able to count atoms at the rate of 10 million per second, it would take about 2 billion years to count the atoms in one mole.
How Big is a Mole?One mole of marbles would cover the entire Earth(oceans included) for a depth of three miles.One mole of $100 bills stacked one on top of anotherwould reach from the Sun to Pluto and back 7.5 milliontimes.It would take light 9500 years to travel from thebottom to the top of a stack of 1 mole of $1 bills.
How BIG is a mole?There are ~ 6.6 billion people on EarthHow many Earths would it take to equal the population of 1 mole? 9.12 x 1013
• If you had a mole of cats . . . They would create a sphere larger than Earth!
• If you had a mole of $$$$$ and you spent $800 billion dollars a day how many years would it take to spend a MOLEion dollars? 2.06 x 109 years
• If you had a mole of H2O could you swim in it? NO! Water molecules are so small that a mole of H2O = 18ml
How small are atoms?• There are more atoms in one gram of salt than grains of sand on all the beaches of all the oceans in all the world.
• Just one granule of sugar contains 1 x 10 17 molecules• Each time you take a breath of air, you inhale about 2 x 1022 molecules of nitrogen and 5 x 10 21 molecules of oxygen.
• In chemistry we don’t work with single atoms or molecules because they are too small to be weighed or measured• We have to work with LOTS of atoms in order to measure them THAT’s WHERE THE MOLE COMES IN!
Examining Molar Relationships in Balanced Equations 6 CO2 + 12 H2O → 6 O2 + C6H12O6 +6 H20Balanced equations –Law of conservation of mass / matter • ATOMS are not created or destroyed during a chemical reaction, they are only rearranged to form new substances. • # atoms on reactant side = # atoms on product side – The Coefficient for each molecule tells you how many “moles” of the molecule are in the reaction. • For example: 6 CO2 = 6 moles of CO2

STOICHIOMETRY- the study of the quantitative (#) aspects of chemical reactions.
Molar Mass• The Mass of 1 mole in grams• Equal to the numerical value of the average atomic mass. This number is found on the periodic table, below the symbol for each element.
Molar MassThe Atomic Mass # does not have units in theperiodic table. Often, chemists use “amu” for theatomic mass unit. To determine the molar mass,we change “amu” into “grams/mole” 1 amu = 1 gram check on your periodic table!!! 1 mole 1 mole of He atoms = 4.0 g 1 mole of C atoms = 12.0 g 1 mole of Mg atoms = 24.3 g 1 mole of Cu atoms = 63.5 g

What is Dimensional Analysis?Dimensional analysis is just a fancy name for a method of calculating that:1. uses numbers in the form of fractions.2. lets us convert from one type of unit measurement to another.3. In chemistry, this lets us convert from moles to grams or visa-versa
What is a Unit?A unit is something that gives deﬁnition to a numerical value, quantity, or measurement.• Length : meters, centimeters, feet, inches, miles, kilometers• Mass : Kilograms, grams, pounds• Time : hours, minutes, seconds, days, months• Volume : cups, teaspoons, liters, milliliters, gallons, quarts• Currency: dollars, cents, dimes
Conversion Factors Conversion factors can be written in 2 ways: The unit you want goes on top or thenumerator and the unit you want tocancel goes on the bottom ordenominator.
Converting Moles and Grams Aluminum is often used for the structure of light-weight bicycle frames. How many grams of Al are in 3.00 moles of Al? 3.00 moles Al ? g Al
1. Molar mass of Al 1 mole Al = 27.0 g Al2. Conversion factors for Al 27.0 g Al or 1 mol Al 1 mol Al 27.0 g AlWhy? Because I want to “cancel” mol and be left with g. g must be on top.3. Setup 3.00 moles Al x 27.0 g Al 1 mole Al4. Math 3 * 27/1 = 815. Answer = 81.0 g Al
