As indicated by the subscript on the atomic symbol for oxygen, there are 3 oxygen atoms.

There are 13 protons in aluminum and 13 electrons. So, there are 13 atoms in aluminum. In oxygen, there are 8 protons and 8 electrons. thus there are 8 atoms. EDIT: This answer is absolutely and completely incorrect. (Dr.J.)

The formula for aluminum chromate is Al2(CrO4)3, so there are 12 oxygen atoms. Multiply the number of oxygen atoms inside the parentheses times the subscript outside the parentheses.

There are three atoms of oxygen per calcium carbonate molecule. name: chalk IUPAC name: calcium carbonate compound formula: CCaO3 formula: CaCO3 (This information was obtained from http://www.wolframalpha.com)

There are 12 oxygen atoms in a molecule of aluminum sulfate. The formula for aluminum sulfate is Al2(SO4)3. This tells us there are 3 sulfate ions, each with 4 oxygen atoms per sulfate, so 3 * 4 = 12.== ==

Calcium carbonate consists of carbon, oxygen, and calcium.

Mass of Aluminum Sulfate: 2.74g Molar Mass of Aluminum Sulfate: 342.14 g/mol Therefore, number of moles of Oxygen can be calculated by 2.74g * 12/342.14 g/mol = 0.096 moles Now since u have the moles of Oxygen, the number of oxygen atoms is given by 0.096 mol * (6.02*10^23) particles or atoms/mol that gives u about 5.78 * 10^22 atoms of oxygen
