**Q1: Define mole**

Answer: A mole (or mol) is defined as the amount of substance which contains equal number of particles (atoms / molecules / ions) as there are atoms in exactly 12.000g of carbon-12.

One mole of carbon-12 atom has a mass of exactly 12.000 grams and contains 6.02 × 10

^{23}atoms.

A mol is just a number like a dozen. A dozen equals to 12 eggs , a gross of Pencil equals to 144 Pencil. Similarly, mol is equal to 6.022 × 10

^{23}(Avagadro constant). Mol is also known as chemist dozen.

The value 6.022 × 10

^{23}is known as Avogadro Constant (N

_{A}), after the Italian scientist who first recognized the importance of the mass/number relationship

**Q2: Why was there need to use this number called mole?**

Answer: Atoms and molecules are extremely small in size and their numbers in even a small amount

of any substance is really very large. To handle such large numbers, a unit of similar magnitude is required.

In SI system, mole (symbol, mol) was introduced as seventh base quantity for the amount of a substance.

Answer: Both (a) and (b) are correct. 1 mol of Cl atom = 36.5 g of Cl (molar mass)

= 6.02 × 10

^{23}atoms.

**Q6: What is atomic mass unit (amu)?**

Answer: Atomic mass unit is defined as a mass exactly equal to one-twelfth the mass of one carbon-12 atom. One atomic mass unit also called one Dalton.

Mass of one mole of C-12 atoms = 12 g = mass of 6.022 × 10

^{23}C-12 atoms

1 amu = 1g per mol = 1/N

**Q7: What is the mass of one**

^{12}C**atom? Express it in grams as well as in amu.**

Answer: one mole of C-12 atoms = 12 g = mass of 6.022 × 10

^{23}C-12 atoms

∴ mass of 1 C-12 atom = 12g ÷ 6.022 × 10

^{23}= 1.994 × 10

**Q20(NCERT): Calculate the molecular mass of the following:**

(i) H

_{2}O

(ii) CO

_{2}

(iii) CH

_{4}

Answer:

Molecular mass is the sum of atomic masses of the elements present in a molecule. It is obtained by multiplying the atomic mass of each element by the number of its atoms and adding them together.

(i) Molecular mass of Water (H

_{2}O) = (2× Atomic mass of H) + (1 × Atomic mass of Oxygen)

= 2 × 1.008u + 1 × 16.00u = 2.016 u + 16.00 u = = 18.016 u =

**18.02 u**

(ii) Molecular mass of CO

_{2}= (1 × Atomic mass of C ) + (2 × Atomic mass of O)

= 1 × 12.011u + 2 × 16.00u = = 12.011 u + 32.00 u =

**44.01 u**

(iii) Molecular mass of CH

_{4}= (1 × Atomic mass of C ) + (4 × Atomic mass of H)

= 1 × 12.011u + 4 × 1.008u = = 12.011 u + 4.032 u =

**Q21(NCERT): How much copper can be obtained from 100 g of copper sulphate (CuSO4)?**

Answer: 1 mole of CuSO

_{4}contains = 1 mole of Cu + 1 mol of S + 4 moles of O.

Molar mass of CuSO

_{4}= (63.5g) + (32.00g) + 4(16.00g)

= 63.5 + 32.00 + 64.00 = 159.5 g

Since, 1 mole of CuSO4 contains 1 mole of Copper.

⇒ 159.5 g of CuSO4 contains 63.5 g of copper.

100g of CuSO4 will have Cu = (63.5 × 100) / 159.5 =

**39.81g**

⇒ 4 u of He = 1 atom of He

1 u of He atom of He = 1/4 atoms of He

52u of He atom of He = 52 × 1/4 =

**13 atoms of He**

(iii) 4 g of He = 6.022 × 10

^{23}atoms of He

52 g of He atoms of He = 6.022 × 10

^{23}× 52 / 4 =

**7.8286 × 10**atoms of He
