grams Moles = formula weight (g / mol)

Where formula weight represents the atomic or molecular weight of the substance.


g g Moles Na2 SO 4 = = f wt 142.04 g / mol g += g = Moles Ag f wt 107.870 g / mol


Calculate the number of grams in one mole of CaSO4 7H2O Solution One mole is the formula weight expressed in grams. The formula weight is

Ca S 11 O 14 H

40.08 32.06 176.00 14.11 262.25 g/mol

milligrams Mi lim oles = formula weight (mg / mmol)

g Na2SO4 = moles X f wt = moles X 142.04 g/mol g Ag = moles X f wt = moles X 107.870 g/mol

We usually work with millimole quantities, so Miligrams = millimoles X formula weight (mg/mmol)
Note that g/mol is the same as mg/mmol, g/L the same as mg/ml, and mol/L the same as mmol/mL.

Calculate the number of moles in 500 mg Na2WO4 (sodium tungstate). Solution

500 mg 293.8 mg/mmol

x 0.001 mol/mmol = 0.00170 mol

How many milligrams are in 0.250 mmol Fe2O3 (ferric oxide)? Solution 0.250 mmol x 159.7 mg/mmol = 39.9 mg

Millimoles = molarity X milliliters (or mmol = M X mL) A solution is prepared by dissolving 1.26 g AgNO3 in a 250 mL volumetric flask and diluting to volume. Calculate the molarity of the silver nitrate solution. How many millimoles AgNO3 were dissolved? Solution
M= 1.26g/169.9g/mol 0.250L = 0.0297mol/L (or 0.0297 mmol/mL)

Then, Millimoles = (0.0297 mmol/mL)(250 mL) = 7.42 mmol

How many grams per milliliter of NaCI are contained In a 0.250 M solution? Solution 0.250 mol/L = 0.250 mmol/mL 0.250 mmol/mL X 58.4 mg/mmol X 0.001 g/mg = 0.0146 g/ml How many grams Na2SO4 should be weighed out to prepare 500 mL of a 0.100 M solution? Solution 500 mL X 0.100 mmol/mL = 50.0 mmol 50.0 mmol X 142 mg/mmol X 0.001 g/mg = 7.10 g

We often must prepare dilute solutions from more concentrated stock solutions. The millimoles taken for dilution will be the same as the millimoles in the diluted solution , i.e., Mstock X mLstock = MDiluted X mLDiluted

You wish to prepare a calibration curve for the spectrophotometric determination of permanganate.You have a stock 0.100 M solution of KMnO4 and a series of 100 mL volumetric flasks. What volumes of the stock solution wll you have to pipet into flasks to prepare standards of 1.00, 2.00, 5.00, and 10.00 X 10-3 M KMnO4 solutions? Solutions A 100 mL solution of 1.00 X 10-3 M KMnO4 will contain 100 mL X 1.00 X 10-3 mmol/mL = 0.100 mmol KMnO4 We must pipet this amount from the stock solution 0.100 mmol / mL X mL = 0.100 mmol = 1.00 mL stock solution For other solutions, will need 2.00, 5.00 and 10.0 mL of stock solution.

A selective reaction or test is one that can occur with other substances but exhibits a degree of preference for the substance of interest. A specific reaction or test is one that occurs only with the substance of interest. Unfortunately, few reactions are specific but many exhibit selectivity. Selectivity may be achieved by a number of strategies. Some examples are: Sample preparation (e.g., extractions, precipitation) Instrumentations (selective detectors) Target analyte derivatization (e.g. derivatize specific functional groups with detecting reagents) Chromatography, which provides powerful separation
