So, question is:

How many hydrogen atoms are in 3.71 pg of C24H26O7.

So first, to convert pico grams to grams, 3.71 x 10 ^ -12 g.

Then find the number of mols of H using the number above and the molar mass of H. Then find the number of atoms using the mols of H and Avagadro's constant, but I can't seem to get the right answer. I've done it several times so I don't think it's a simple calculation error. Any help?

God I hated chem..good luck bro. You're gonna need to find a chemistry major to answer that one for ya.

Almost, once you have the number of molecules, which is attained by multiplying your moles by Avagadro's number, multiply the number of molecules, by the number of atoms/molecule. So in hydrogen's case you would multiply number of molecules by 26.
It's just that easy.
c24h26o7
So, 3.71x10^-12 divided by the molar mass of that is... 3.71x10^-12 / 426, which gives you... 8.71x10^-15moles, take that number multiply it by avagadros number gives you... 8.71x10^-15molesx6.02x10-23...so you have 5.24x10^-37molecules. NOW times that by 26, gives you the final answer of.....

1.36x10^-35. am i right or wat.

I GIVEZ U DA ANSWA!!

Well you gotta find the grams/mol ratio of the compound - not just the hydrogen part of it.

3.71 x 10 ^ -12 g of the substance.

Divide that by its RFM, which is 288 + 26 + 112 = 426

To give the moles. I can't do it, I don't have a calculator.

Avogadro's constant = 6.0221415 × 10^23 molecules in one mole.

So multiply the constant by the number of moles to find the number of molecules.

Then multiply the number of molecules by 26 to give number of H atoms.

I think.
I will try to help you... but i wont do it for you....

you need to find the mols of C24H26O7 in 3.71 x 10 ^ -12 g.

Then you take that number and multiply it by 26 (because there are 26 atoms of hydrogens in 1 mol)

this will give you the number of mols of H, then find the number of atoms with avogadro's number

I havent made chemistry for long but I dont think I'm wrong

good luck!
Okay, one more question. When I divide the mass by the molar mass to get the # of moles, is the molar mass going to be 1.008 (hydrogens molar mass) or 1.008x26?
1.008 cause it is the molar mass of H you want... not H26
Damn, I was pretty good at this a couple of years ago, but not anymore, I guess, and it's in English, too, so I can't quite help you But chem is fun, you can make some awesome stuff like acid

For molar mass you have to do this
MMC=24atoms x 12mu = 288
MMH=26atoms x 1mu = 26
MMO=7atoms x 16mu= 112

Then you add them all togetha.

MMC(288) + MMH(26) + MMO(112) = 426!

YAY!

When are you going to be dividing by the molar mass of hydrogen? I'm pretty sure you have that confused with dividing by the molar mass of the original substance (some type of sugar?) but take everything I say with a grain of salt though.
Well I came up with 1.36x10^11 Hydrogen atoms.

You know that the RMM of the molecule is 426.

You need to know what percentage of that mass is made up of Hydrogen atoms.

So you have 26 Hydrogens with individual RAMs of 1 so you have an RMM for Hydrogen of 26.

26/426 = 6.10% (rounded).

The mass therefore is 6.1% of 3.71x10^-12g which comes out to:

2.2631x10^-13g

Multiply this by 6.023x10^23 (avogadros constant) and you get:

1.36x10^11 Hydrogen atoms.
