then you might want to solve the questions by yourself and check it against my solution.
If you get stuck, you can always look at the solution.

------------------
The atomic weight of each element actually tells us how many grams one mole of the element weighs. Or in other words, how many grams do 6.0231023 atoms of the element weigh.

For example, Arsenic's atomic weight is 74.92
This ...

Solution Summary

The solution describes the concept of mole in chemistry and shows simple mass-to-mole conversion procedure.
