    We need the molecular mass of glucose.

    that is, the weight of 1 mole of glucose

    To find the molecular mass, add the atomic masses of all of the atoms in the molecule. Multiply the subscript (number of atoms) times the atomic mass of that element and add the masses of all of the elements in the molecule to get the molecular mass.

    molecular mass C6H12O6 = 6(12.01) + 12(1.008) + 6(16.00) =180.16 gm/mole

    So the answer is 180.16 gram

    1 mole of any substance contains Avagadro number of molecules in it.

    so the second answer is 6.023 X 10^23
