Grams, Moles and Molar Mass Worksheet 
1.     What is the mass of 0.100 mol of each of the substances given below:

(a)  Sodium carbonate, Na2CO3

(b)  Ammonium tetraborate, (NH4)2B4O7

(c)  Calcium cyclamate, Ca(C6H12NSO3)2

2. How many moles of sodium nitrate are in 1.70 grams of sodium nitrate, NaNO3, a substance used in fertilizers and to make gunpowder.
3. Ammonium sulphate, (NH4)2SO4, is a fertilizer used to supply both nitrogen and sulphur.  How many grams of ammonium sulphate are in 35.8 moles of (NH4)2SO4.

4. A 0.500 mol sample of table sugar, C12H22O11, weighs how many grams?

5. A solution of zinc chloride, ZnCl2, in water is used to soak the ends of wooden fenceposts to preserve them from rotting while they are stuck in the ground. One ratio used is 840 grams ZnCl2 to 4 L water. How many moles of ZnCl2 are in 840 grams of ZnCl2?

6. In the early 1970s, thallium sulphate, Tl2SO4, a powerful poison, was illegally used in poison baits to control predators such as coyotes on western rangelands. Hundreds of eagles died after taking these baits. A 1.00 kilogram can of Tl2SO4 contains how many moles of this compound?

A sample of acid has a mass of 200 g. If this sample is know to contain 1.5 moles of atoms, what is the molar mass of the acid?

5.6 moles of a chemical has a mass of 950 grams.  What is the molar mass of the sample.

9. Ammonium carbonate,(NH4)2CO3, is used as a fertilizer and to manufacture explosives.  How many atoms of nitrogen are in 0.665 moles of this substance? How many grams of ammonium
nitrate supply this much nitrogen?

10. Sodium perborate, NaBO3, is present in "oxygen bleach". It acts by releasing oxygen,  which has bleaching ability. How many grams of sodium perborate are in 4.65 moles of  NaBO3?

11. Barium sulphate, BaSO4, is given to patients as a thick slurry in flavoured water before X-rays are taken of the intestinal tract. The barium blocks the X-rays, and the tract therefore casts a shadow that is seen on the x-ray film. How many grams are in 0.568 mole of barium sulphate.

12. Calculate the number of grams in 0.586 mole of each of the following substances?

(a)  Water, H2O

(b)  Glucose, C6H12O6, a sugar in grape juice and honey

(c)  Iron, Fe

(d)  Methane, CH4

13. Calculate the number of moles of each substance in 100.0 grams of each of the following samples:

(a)  Ammonia, NH3

(b)  Cholesterol, C27H46O

(c)  Gold, Au

(d)  Ethyl alcohol, C2H6O

14. Why does 100.0 grams of ammonia, NH3, have so many more moles than 100.0 grams of cholesterol, C27H46O?
