Best Answer

One drop of water has the volume of about 0.05 mL.

Because the density of water is 1, the mass is 0.05 g. The molar mass of water (H2O) is 18.0 grams/mol (1.008 + 1.008 + 16.0). This means there is one mole of water in 18.0 grams. One mole is 6.02 × 1023 molecules.

Then you can convert grams to number of atoms:

0.05 grams ÷ 18.0 grams × (6.02 × 1023 molecules) = 1.67× 1021 molecules

How many water molecules in 1 milliliter of water?

In biology/chemistry labs, one assumes that there are 20 drops of water in a milliliter of water. If one knows how many molecules are in a drop of water, then the answer can be calculated. Start by weighing one mL of water in grams. Then calculate the number of moles; then use Avogadro's number.

Does water have one or many cells?

A water molecule has 3 atoms. Water (like a drop, or cup) is made of many molecules and is in cells. It is not however made up of cells.

How many molecules in a drop of water?

How big is a drop? "A drop" is not a precise measurement. It depends on a number of factors. If you measure how big the drops of water are you're talking about, (in millilitre) then you could figure out the number of molecules based on the fact that Avogadro's number of water molecules have a volume of about 18 milliliters. Avogadro's number is 6.022 * 1023 (particles) per mole One drop: average volume about 0.05 ml = 0.05 g Molar mass of water 18.01 g/mol Meaning: about 1.7*1021 molecules in a drop of water: don't start counting them!!
