    This is the one I need help with:

    How many moles in 8.30 x 10^25 molecules H2O?


    I hope I at least did the other ones correctly.:rofl:

    I saw a few of the first ones and they seemed right... sry, kind of lazy to check all of them.

    for the last one

    1 mole = 6.022*10^23 molecules ... in other words:

    ___1mole________________ = ___x-moles_____
    6.022*10^23molecules_____8.30 x 10^25molecules


    now solve for x just by multiplying 8.30*10^25
    which gives you 137.8279641 moles.
    Now, if you count sig. digits that would be 138 moles.

    I don't blame ya, it's a wonder that I did them all myself.:rofl:

    How are you getting that? I'm a bit confused...I'm assuming, hopefully correctly, that you meant to put the 8.30 x 10^25 on the top, not the bottom? Otherwise, I'm lost.:tongue:

    Its an equation. when you multiply 8.30*10^25 on both sides, the 8.30*10^25 on the right side cancels out and you put it on the left side too ( on top of the equation) then just divide, and as you see, molecules cancel out, leaving you with just moles.

    Remember you are solving for the variable "x-moles"
