N. Calculate the number of moles of magnesium oxide, MgO in i. 80 g and ii. 10 g of the compound. (Average atomic masses of Mg = 24 and O = 16)

verified

Molar mass of MgO= (atomic mass of Mg)+(atomic mass of O)

=24+16

=40 g/mol

1) 80g of MgO

number of mol = $$Given \space mass \over Molar \space mass$$

=$${80\over 40}=2mol$$

2) 10 g of MgO

number of mol =$$Given \space mass \over Molar \space mass$$

=$${10\over 40}=0.25 mol$$
