How to solve the problems of avogadro constant????
Here is one problem of mine:
Calculate the total number of atoms in 8.5g of CH2Cl2. Molar mass of CH2Cl2 is 85 g/mol

the equation for avogadro's constant is

so you can calculate the number of moles coz you've got the mass (8.5g) and you've got the molar mass (85g/mol)
then just sub it into the equation and you're good

Thx,
So you wanted to say that we need to multiply moles with avogadro constant which is equal to number of molecules divided by atoms.

no, it's equal to the number of molecules OR atoms

you have to go through a step first using the
mass = Mr x moles
equation first. you have the mass (8.5g) and you have the Mr/molar mass (85) so in order to find the number of moles, you'll have to divide the mass by the Mr.
then you multiply by Avogadro's constant to find the number of molecules or atoms.

So Avogadro's constant is the number of atoms or molecules in 1 mole of substance. If you have 2 moles of substance, the number of atoms you have would be double Avogadro's constant --> #moles * Avogadro's constant = # of atoms or # of molecules

First you gotta determine the number of moles you have of CH2Cl2: so (8.5g)/(85g/mol) = 0.1mol
Then multiply your answer by Avogadro's constant: 0.1 * 6.022*10^23 = 6.022*10^22 molecules in 8.5g of CH2Cl2

Hope that helps

= 6.022*10^22 molecules in 8.5g of CH2Cl2
The OP asked about the number of atoms in 8.5 g, NOT the number of molecules.

There are 5 atoms (1xC, 2xH & 2xCl) in each molecule of CH2Cl2, hence there will be 5 x 6.02x1023.

In general when you're writing text in LaTeX it should be upright, this means on TSR you have to use \text{...}. Also to do a displayed fraction, use \dfrac{numerator}{denominator}.
