Moles
Calculate the number of moles of aluminum, sulfur, and oxygen atoms in 8.00 of aluminum sulfate, .
Express the number of moles of Al, S, O, and atoms numerically, separated by commas.

Formula of Aluminum sulfate is Al2(SO4)3 and molar mass = 342 g/mol.

Note: Unit for amount of Aluminum sulfate is not specified.

Assuming 8.00 moles Aluminum sulfate is given:
8.00 moles Al2(SO4)3 x 2 moles Al / mole Al2(SO4)3 = 16 moles Al
8.00 moles Al2(SO4)3 x 3 moles S / mole Al2(SO4)3 = 24 moles S
8.00 moles Al2(SO4)3 x 12 moles O / mole Al2(SO4)3 = 96 moles O
Answer for number of moles of Al, S, O: 16, 24, 96

Assuming 8.00 grams Aluminum ...
