# Amount Of Substance Notes

This is a sample of our (approximately) 3 page long Amount Of Substance notes, which we sell as part of the Chemistry AS Notes collection, a A package written at Manchester High School For Girls Sixth Form in 2013 that contains (approximately) 54 pages of notes across 17 different documents.

### Amount Of Substance Revision

The following is a plain text extract of the PDF sample above, taken from our Chemistry AS Notes. This text version has had its formatting removed so pay attention to its contents alone rather than its presentation. The version you download will have its original formatting intact and so will be much prettier to look at.

Unit 1; 2 Amount of Substance

CALCULATIONS PRECISION Unless speciﬁed otherwise;

• Calculations - 3sf

• Relative Ar, Mr, etc - 1dp

• Titration Volumes - 2dp

• Temperatures - 1dp

V. Important Deﬁnitions (LEARN) RELATIVE ATOMIC MASS Ar = average mass of 1 atom of an element

1/12th mass of an atom of 12C RELATIVE MOLECULAR MASS, Mr = average mass of a molecule

1/12th mass of an atom of 12C RELATIVE FORMULA MASS, Mr =

average mass of an entity 1/12th mass of an atom of 12C

Moles and the Avogadro's Constant The AVOGADRO CONSTANT, L, is deﬁned as the number of atoms in exactly 12g of

12

C

L = 6.022 x 1023particle mol-1 A MOLE is an amount of substance that contains as many particles (atoms, molecules, ion, electrons) as there are atoms in exactly 12g of 12C Use with solids + gases Amount, in mol =
mass

Molar mass (Mr) Moles; unt mol Mass; units g Mr has no units

Use with solutions No. of moles = concentration (mol/dm3) x volume of solution (in dm3)

Atom Economy The ATOM ECONOMY of a chemical reaction is the proportion of reactants that are converted into useful products rather than waste products.
-Chemical process that have a high atom economy;

> are more efﬁcient

> produce less waste Atom economy = total mass of desired products x 100
