Assuming that by sugar you mean glucose, the chemical formula is C6H12O6, so 6 carbon atoms, 12 hydrogen atoms and 6 oxygen atoms. 6 + 12 + 6 = 24 atoms.

There is no general formula for sugar as there are many different sugars and each has a different structure and number of atoms. A very common sugar is glucose which has the formula C6H1206.

There many types of sugar. If you are talking about sucrose or table sugar there are 275 atoms in 5 molecules.

Table sugar - sucrose - contains 12 carbon atoms, 22 hydrogen atoms, and 11 oxygen atoms per molecule. Other sugars have different formulae.

The term "sugar" can refer to many different molecules.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Simple sugars have the formula Cn(H2O)n .To be able to answer your question you need to know at least how many carbon, hydrogen, or oxygen atoms are in your sugar molecule or the name of the sugar molecule. So, if you had 6 carbon atoms in your simple sugar you would have the formula C6H12O6.Note that this is the the molecular formula for Glucose & Fructose, where the two sugars have different structures (Glucose is a aldohexose, and Fructose is a ketohexose).------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The simplest sugar is Glucose and this has the chemical formula C6H12O6It is thus made of6 Carbon atoms12 Hydrogen atoms6 Oxygen atomsMaking a total of 12 atoms.

That depends on what kind of sugar you're talking about. Table sugar, or sucrose, has the formula C12H22O11. One molecule of sucrose has 22 hydrogen atoms. Blood sugar, or glucose, has the formula C6H12O6. One molecule of glucose has 12 hydrogen atoms. Other types of sugar have different formulas. If you know the chemical formula, look at the subscript to the right of the H to see how many hydrogen atoms are in one molecule of sugar.

the atoms dissolve with the atoms and the molecules to lock the sugar and salt / lock in to make the crystals

One molecule of table sugar has 45 atoms.

there are many different cells which have different atoms and a cell consist of of many different atoms

Table sugar, sucrose, has 8 hydrogen atoms.

There are 11 oxygen atoms in a molecule of table sugar.

depends on the type of compound sugar

The formula for sucrose (common sugar) is C12H22O11 , there are 11 oxygen atoms

There are eleven oxygen atoms in a molecule of table sugar C12H22O11.

Yes. Sugar has three atoms.

There are 22 atoms of hydrogen, 12 atoms of carbon, and 11 atoms of oxygen.

Sucrose has 22 atoms of hydrogen, 12 atoms of carbon, and 11 atoms of oxygen

The chemical formula of table sugar is C12H22O11; this molecule contain 45 atoms.

I know that table salt has no hydrogen atoms; NaCl2

If there are 2 moles of sugar. and 12 atoms of carbon per sugar molecule then there will be 24 moles of carbon atoms.

The molecule of the table sugar contain 45 atoms.
