Our bodies are approximately 60% water. Using the assumption that our bodies are completely water, and the average person weights around 75kg, how many molecules are there in the human body?

1. moles = mass/Mr.

2. moles = number of molecules/Avogadro's constant.

use the equation

number of particles = mass of substance / Molar mass (this is equal to the relative atomic mass)

- What's the molecular mass of water? (think about what water actually is in terms of the respective elements)

- How do I find the number of moles of something? (this will come in handy for the next equation.)

- What do I multiply the number of moles of a substance by to find the number of molecules? (rhymes with 'avocado')

Not allowed to give straight answers, sorry. Can I just ask, would I have to convert 75kg to 75,000g??

Is the answer .. 2.509541539x10^27 ? :P
Approximately, yes. I'm guessing you used 18 for the Mr value of water rather than 18.02? My answer is off by only a few decimal places so your answer would still be accepted unless the examiners had supplied the Ar of each element in the question and you failed to use it correctly. 0

Yap I used 18 :^_^: And no the Ar wasn't given ! Thanks for your help !!!! 1

what is the molecular mass of 2Fe?
The question is calculate atom economy to make iron from iron oxide?

Fe2O3+3CO=2FE+3CO2
