Chemistry Conversions

 


 In chemistry if you are not proficient at converting between chemical units you will have a rough time.  This exercise will hopefully help you to do these conversions easily.

 After the diagram above has been explained by your teacher refer to it while performing the following conversions:
 

Single-step conversions

1.  32.4 molecules Cl2    mole Cl2 (5.38 x 10-23)

2.  4.52 mole Ag    atoms Ag (2.72 X 10 24)

3.  75.3 g NH3    mole NH3 (4.42)

4.  0.0453 mole CH4    g CH4  (.727)

5.  33.4 L H2     mole H2 (1.49)

6.  1.99 mole N2    L N2  (44.6)
 

Two-step conversions (cha cha cha)

7.  1.45 g O2     L O2   (1.02)

8.  4.00 x 1025 NaCl    g NaCl  (3.88 x 103)

9.  401 L NO2     molecules NO2 (1.08 x 1025)
