### What conversion factor is used when converting moles to mass?

the molar mass
1 mole = xxx grams based on the chemical formula
Ex: CO2 ... the atomic mass of carbon is 12, and the atomic mass
of oxygen is 16
but the molar mass = (1 x 12) + (2 x 16) because of the number
of atoms of each in the formula. molar mass = 44. so 1 mole = 44
grams ... turn this fact into a conversion factor. 44g / 1mole is
