# How many atoms of copper are present in 1.2 kilogram sample?

For this problem, the atomic mass is required. Take the mass in grams and divide it by the atomic mass. Then multiply it by Avogadro's constant, 6.02 Ã— 1023.

1.2 kg = 1200 g

1200 grams Cu / (63.5 grams) Ã— (6.02 Ã— 1023 atoms) = **1.14
Ã— 10****25** **atoms**

### How many oxygen atoms are there in a molecule of copper nitrate?

The compound copper nitrate has Cu(NO3)2 for a chemical formula. In that formula, we see that there is an NO3 radical present, and that there are 3 atoms of oxygen in that radical (the sub 3 after the O). But there are 2 of those NO3 radicals (the sub 2 outside of the parens) present in this compound. That means that there are 3 x 2 oxygen atoms in a molecule of copper nitrate, or…

### In the compound Cu2OH2CO3 which element is present with the largest percent by mass?

From the formula of the compound, each molecular unit contains 2 copper atoms, 4 oxygen atoms, one carbon atom, and 2 hydrogen atoms. Multiplying each of these by its corresponding atomic mass gives 127 atomic mass units ("amu") of copper, 64 amu of oxygen, 12 amu of carbon, and 2 amu of hydrogen. Copper is clearly present in the largest percent by mass.

### Which sample contains the greatest number of atoms a sample of Mn that contains 3.29E plus 24 atoms or a 5.18 mole sample of you?

Which sample contains the greatest number of atoms. A sample of Mn that contains 3.29E+24 atoms or a 5.18 mole sample of I? The sample of _____ contains the greatest number of atoms. Answer: In order to compare the two samples, it is necessary to express both quantities in the same units. Since the question was phrased in terms of atoms, it is convenient to convert moles of I to atoms of I. The conversion…

### Where is the excess copper from after adding zinc to copper sulfate?

The "excess" metallic copper produced by adding zinc metal to a copper sulfate solution comes from exchanging zinc atoms from the metal for copper atoms from the copper sulfate solution. During the reaction, the zinc atoms are ionized to cations and the copper cations from the solution are reduced to neutral atoms.

### Which sample contains the greatest number of atoms a sample of Al that contains 8.18E plus 23 atoms or a 5.16 mole sample of S?

Which sample contains the greatest number of atoms. A sample of Al that contains 8.18E+23 atoms or a 5.16 mole sample of S? The sample of______ contains the greatest number of atoms. Answer: In order to compare the two samples, it is necessary to express both quantities in the same units. Since the question was phrased in terms of atoms, it is convenient to convert moles of S to atoms of S. The conversion factor…

### How do you calculate how many atoms are in a compound?

If you know the elements in the compound, you can find the mass per mole of the compound, and use Avogadro's Constant (the number of atoms per mole) to find out the number of atoms for a given mass of a compound. For example, if I have 50g of Copper, this is approximately 0.79 moles of Copper. I multiply Avogadro's Constant, which is approximately 6*10^23, by 0.79, which gives me 4.74*10^23, so I know that…

### How many Cu atoms are in the 0.0159 mol sample?

The molar mass of copper is approximately 63.5 g. To find how many of these are in our sample we must divide.0.0159/63.5 = 2.5 x 10 ^ -4 = 0.00025 moles. Each mole contains the Avogadro number of atoms, i.e. 6.023 x 10 ^ 23, so in total we have 0.00025x 6.023 x 10 ^ 23 = 1.51 x 10 ^ 20 atoms approximately.
