Best answer
a)  Number of moles of carbon

1 molecule of CH3CHO contains 2 C-atoms.

Therefore, 2 mol of CH3CHO contains 2×2 = 4 moles of Carbon.

 

b)  Number of moles of hydrogen

1 molecule of CH3CHO contains 4 H-atoms.

Therefore, 2 mol of CH3CHO contains 2×4 = 8 moles of Hydrogen.

 

c) Number of moles of oxygen

1 molecule of CH3CHO contains 1 O-atom.

Therefore, 2 mol of CH3-CHO contains 2×1 = 2 moles of Carbon.

 

d)  Number of molecules of acetaldehyde​

1 mole of acetaldehyde contains 6.022×1023 molecules,

as 2 mol will contain 2×6.022×1023 = 1.2044×1024 Acetaldehyde molecules.
