My teachers a total douche and wont help on my final project i need to pass. I need to set up a 2 step mole problem of how many moles of guitar picks will go around the world. how the hell do i set that up?

step mole? explain your definiton of mole in this context?

what does 'will go around the work' even mean

i did moles and stuff like that a while ago but i have forgotten, you could try yahoo answers maybe?
DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP

work out the conversions tables.


not that hard.

addendum: all you need is the length of the picks, circumference of the earth, and then avogadros number.


whats a conversion table?

it is a table you use to start with a number, use the table to cancel out the units, and end with the answer.


like.


.01000 mL HCL x .09187 M HCl (moles/L) x (1 mol Na2CO3/2 mol HCl) x 105.988 molar mass of Na2CO3 (g/mol) divided by .2055 grams sample (x 100%) = percent composition of Na2CO3 in a sample of soda ash.


can you follow that?

a mole is 6x10 to the 23rd power.

EDIT: sorry, it's actually 6.02x10 to the 23rd power.

1) find circumference of Earth
2)divide that by the length of a pic and make sure they're in the same units
3)divide that by 6.022 times 10 to the 23 (a "mole") and that'll give you the # of moles you need to go around the world


btw that's REALLY REALLY simple and are you sure you're taking chemistry if you don't know what a mole is???

a mole is just a number and it's 6.022x10^23
you can have a mole of anything, like guitar picks or cheetahs


btw you don't need the molecular mass of a pick or anything so don't worry about that

find the circumference of the earth

dividing that by the length of a pick will give you the amount of picks it takes to go around the earth. there's no way you can express the amount of moles if you only have the amount of picks, you will need their density to find their mass and the molecular mass of the material to find out how many moles are in one pick.

1 mole = 6.23 x 10^23 molecules
it's not just a number, it's an amount of molecules, the number 6.23... is called Avogadro's number.

EDIT: Upon reading the TS question another time, I saw he was actually asked for the amount of moles of guitar picks... if that really is the question then you don't need mass or anything...
however moles should be used to quantify molecules, not macroscopic objects so I really doubt about the scientific value of this homework .

Ok, but what's the molecular mass of a pick?


..why does that matter?

^ can't you just use the equation:

mole = N (number of particles, in this case picks) / avagadro's constant?

...

Have you paid ANY attention at all?

That's like the most important part of high school Chemistry!

i thought it was 6.02? not that it makes much of a difference

you can have a mole of anything, I can have a mole of ****ing chimps if I want.

Couldn't have said it any better myself.

Just say "about 2.27 femtomoles" and don't show any setup.
