A mole is defined as the mass of the substance which consists of the equal quantity of basic units. Example atoms in 12 grams are the same as 12C. The basic units can be molecules, atoms or formula units based on the substance. A mole fraction indicates the number of chemical elements. One mole of any substance is equal to the value of 6.023 x 1023 (Avagadro number). It can be used to measure the products obtained from the chemical reaction. The unit is denoted by mol.
The formula for the number of moles formula is expressed as
Solved Examples On Number Of Moles Formulas
Example 1: Determine the number of moles in 95g of MnO2.
Mass of MnO2 = 95g
Mass of one mole MnO2 = 86.94g
Number of moles formula is
Number of moles = Mass of substance / Mass of one mole
Number of moles = 95 / 86.94
Number of moles = 1.092 mol
