This lesson introduces the mole concept. Moles are used to find the mass of a sample of atoms as well as the number of atoms in a sample. A more complicated multi-step problem is tackled at the end of the lesson. This lesson can really help your students with their critical thinking skills!
This lesson is appropriate for AP Chemistry or Honors Introductory Chemistry.
Detailed answer keys are included.
The topics covered include:
-Definition of a Mole
-Moles and Atomic Mass
-Relating Atomic Mass Units and Grams
-Conversions Involving Moles
-Mass of a Sample of Atoms
-Number of Atoms in a Sample
-Percent Abundances and the Mole Concept
-Atoms in a Lead Cube
