    Hey,
    what is the best way to lay out the answer to this Avogadro's question: What is the mass of 1.505x10^{22} atoms of carbon?

     1 mole (12g) -> 6.02x10^{23}
    xg -> 1.505x10^{22}

    So, 1.505x10^{22} carbon atoms have a mass of:

    \frac{12 \times 1.505^{22}}{6.023 \times 10^{23}}  = 0.3g

    Would that be fine?
    Thanks

    Yeah, that's fine, although I personally would work out the number of moles first, then multiply that by 12g, but it's the same thing anyway.
