## What is the representative particle for FE?

atom

For an atomic substance (He, Fe), a representative particle is an atom.

**How do you calculate representative particles?**

Multiply the value obtained in Step 3 by Avogadro’s number, which represents the number of representative particles in a mole. Avogadro’s number has a value of 6.02 x 10^23. Continuing the example, 2 moles of water x 6.02 x 10^23 particles per mole = 1.20 x 10^24 particles.

### What is the number of representative particles in a mole?

6.02 × 10 23

Avogadro’s number: The number of representative particles in a mole, 6.02 × 10 23 .

**What is the number of representative particles in 3.00 mol SN?**

IV. Find the number of representative particles in each substance. | |
---|---|

1. 3.00 mol Sn | 1.81×1024 atoms of Sn |

2. 0.400 mol KCl | 2.41×1023 formula units KCl |

3. 7.50 mol SO2 | 4.53×1024 molecules SO2 |

4. 4.80 × 10−3 mol NaI | 2.89×1021 formula units NaI |

## What are the three representative particles?

A representative particle is the smallest unit of a substance that can be broken down without altering the composition. Matter is composed of three types of representative particles: atoms, molecules and formula units.

**What are the 4 representative particles?**

The types of representative particles that chemists generally work with are:

- atoms – the smallest particle of an element.
- ions – atoms with positive or negative charges.
- molecules – two or more covalently bonded atoms.
- formula units – the simplest ratio of ions that make up an ionic compound.

### How do you solve for the number of particles?

Calculating the number of particles

- The number of particles in a substance can be calculated using:
- Number of particles = Avogadro constant × the amount of substance in mol.
- Calculate the number of water molecules in 0.5 mol of water.
- Number of water molecules = Avogadro constant x amount of substance in mol.

**How many particles are in 4 moles?**

Nathan L. In science, we have a name for this, called Avogadro’s number, and it describes the number of representative particles in one mole of a substance. The inverse mole unit tells us there are 6.022×1023 particles of something *per mole*.

## How many atoms are in 3.00 moles of Sn?

There are 3×NA tin atoms in 3.0 mol of tin metal, where NA is Avogadro’s number, 6.022×1023 mol−1 .

**How many representative particles are in 7.5 mol of sulfur dioxide?**

Explanation: So if there are 7.50 mol SO2 molecules; there are 7.5×NA individual SO2 molecules, and in that quantity there are 7.5×NA individual S ATOMS, and 15×NA individual O atoms.

### How do you convert mass to number of particles?

To calculate the number of atoms in a sample, divide its weight in grams by the amu atomic mass from the periodic table, then multiply the result by Avogadro’s number: 6.02 x 10^23.
