Best Answer

----

Golds molecular weight is 196.96 g/mol

Thus, 1g of gold is (1g /196.96 g/mol) = 0.005 mol

----

1 mol is 6.022 × 1023 atoms (Avogadro's Number)

Thus, 0.005 mol is (0.005 mol x 6.022 × 1023 atoms/mol) = 3.057 x 1021 atoms

----

Therefore 1g of gold has APPROXIMATELY 3.057 x 1021 atoms

None. Gold is an element, which means there are atoms of gold, not different atoms that join to form gold. Gold has 79 protons and 79 neutrons in the nucleus of a gold atom. There are 79 electrons orbiting the nucleus.

...Gold is an element. There can be an atom of gold, but since gold isn't a compound, there is no atom within gold.
