The subscript in the chemical formula C2H6 tells you that one C2H6 molecule contains 2 carbon atoms. Or, in terms of moles, 1 mol C2H6 contains 2 mol C. This mole ratio can be used as a conversion factor.

500 mol C2H6 x 2 mol C = 1000 mol C

........................1 mol C2H6

The formula C2H6 shows that there are two carbon atoms in each molecule of the compound. Since the formula mass for elemental carbon is a single atom, 500 moles of the compound will contain 1000 moles of carbon.

The Law of Definite Proportions states that for every mole of ethane, there will be two moles of carbon. Then there is 1 mole of carbon in one half a mole of ethane.

There is one mole of carbon per one mole of CCl4. So if there is 0.5 mole of CCl4 then there are 0.5 moles of C in CCl4.

0.5 x 6.022x1023 =3.011x1023 CO2 molecules =3.011x1023 Carbon Atoms
