    I'm a bit stuck on this question

    How many moles of atoms are there in 1.00 mol of HNO3?

    If you could show me how to work it out, I would greatly appreciate it.

    There is no real calculation involved in this, it is simply a fact you need to know.

    In 1 mol of any element there are always 6.022 x 10^23 atoms, it's called Avogadro's constant.

    So you have to combine the atoms in one mol of H, one mol of N and 3 times the mol of O. Basically avogadro's constant multiplied by 5

    How about if the question asked

    how many atoms are there in 0.100 mol of C3H8?

    How many atoms are there in one molecule of HNO3? How many atoms are there in 2 molecules of HNO3? By the same logic, how many moles of atoms are there in one mol of HNO3?

    1 mol = 6.022 x 10^23 atoms

    Therefore for 0.1mols, as you've divided it by 10 you also divide the number of atoms by 10, simple maths...

    One mol doesn't necessarily contain 6.022 x 10^23 atoms.eg. one mol of HCl contains 12.044 x 10^23 atoms.

    Yes I should have been clearer, by any substance I was referring to any element, in which a mol always equals the same number of atoms

    can you please explain to me how you get 12.044 x 10^23. i am bad at these calculations

    1 mol of any element = 6.022 x 10^23 atoms.

    And HCl is made up of 2 elements, Hydrogen and Chlorine. Therefore if you have 1 mol of HCl you have 1 mol of H, and 1 mol of Cl, so it's Avogadro's constant multiplied by 2.

    Convert tonnes to grams and then divide that by iron's molar mass.
