Calculating the Number of Molecules Present in a Sample

I need to calculate the number of molecules present in:
(a) 0.650 mol propane, C3H8, a gas used in laboratories
(b) a 500mg tablet of CaCO3, an antacid

Solution Preview

a.

There are 6.022x10^23 molecules of "chemical X" in a mole of "chemical X" (in this case "chemical X" is propane).

"Mole" is just a number.

you have 0.650 mol of propane times 6.022x10^23 molecules per mole

= 3.91x10^23 molecules

b.
For the next one, you need to convert ...
