Counting atoms and molecules
When conducting a chemical reaction, it is often important
to mix reactants in the correct proportions. This prevents
contamination of the products by wasted reactants.

## However, atoms are very

small and impossible to count
out. In order to estimate the
number of atoms in a sample
of an element, it is necessary
to find their mass.

## The mass of an atom is

quantified in terms of
relative atomic mass.

Relative atomic mass
The relative atomic mass (Ar) of an element is the mass of
one of its atoms relative to 1/12 the mass of one atom of
carbon-12.
relative atomic mass average mass of an atom 12
=
(Ar) mass of one atom of carbon-12

## Most elements have more

than one isotope. The Ar of
the element is the average
mass of the isotopes, taking
into account the abundance of
each isotope. This is why the
Ar of an element is frequently
not a whole number.

Relative molecular mass
The relative molecular mass (Mr) of a covalent substance
is the mass of one molecule relative to 1/12 the mass of
one atom of carbon-12.

## Mr can be calculated by adding together the masses of

each of the atoms in a molecule.

## Example: what is the Mr of H2SO4?

1. Count number of atoms (2 H) + (1 S) + (4 O)
2. Substitute the Ar values (2 1.0) + (1 32.1) +
(4 16.0)
3. Add the values together 2.0 + 32.1 + 64.0 = 98.1

Relative formula mass
The equivalent of relative molecular mass for an ionic
substance is the relative formula mass.
This is the mass of a formula unit relative to 1/12 the mass
of one atom of carbon-12. It is calculated in the same way
as relative molecular mass, and is represented by the same
symbol, Mr.

## Example: what is the Mr of CaCl2?

1. Count number of atoms (1 Ca) + (2 Cl)
2. Substitute the Ar values (1 40.1) + (2 35.5)
3. Add the values together 40.1 + 71.0 = 111.1

In 1811 the Italian scientist Amedeo Avogadro developed a
theory about the volume of gases.

Equal volumes of different gases at the same pressure
and temperature will contain equal numbers of particles.

## For example, if there are 2 moles of O2 in 50 cm3 of oxygen

gas, then there will be 2 moles of N2 in 50 cm3 of nitrogen
gas and 2 moles of CO2 in 50 cm3 of carbon dioxide gas at
the same temperature and pressure.
Using this principle, the volume that a gas occupies will
depend on the number of moles of the gas.

## 12 of 29 Boardworks Ltd 2009

Molar volumes of gases
If the temperature and pressure are fixed at convenient
standard values, the molar volume of a gas can be
determined.

## Standard temperature is 273 K and pressure is 100 kPa.

At standard temperature and pressure, 1 mole of any gas
occupies a volume of 22.7 dm3. This is the molar volume.

## Example: what volume does 5 moles of CO2 occupy?

volume occupied = no. moles molar volume
= 5 22.7
= 113.5 dm3

## 13 of 29 Boardworks Ltd 2009

Ideal gas equation
How is the number of moles in a gas at other
temperatures and pressures calculated?

## The ideal gas equation relates pressure, volume, number

of moles and temperature for a gas.

pV = nRT
p = pressure in Pa n = number of moles
V = volume in m3 R = gas constant: 8.31JK-1 mol-1
T = temperature in Kelvin

an ideal gas.

## 14 of 29 Boardworks Ltd 2009

Ideal gas equation: converting units
It is very important when using the ideal gas equation that
the values are in the correct units.

## The units of pressure, volume or temperature often need

to be converted before using the formula.

Pressure
to convert kPa to Pa: 1000
Volume
to convert dm3 to m3: 1000 (103)
to convert cm3 to m3: 1 000 000 (106)
Temperature
to convert C to Kelvin: + 273

Types of formulae

## The empirical formula of a compound shows the

relative numbers of atoms of each element present,
using the smallest whole numbers of atoms.

## For example, the empirical formula of hydrogen peroxide

is HO the ratio of hydrogen to oxygen is 1:1.

## The molecular formula of a compound gives the actual

numbers of atoms of each element in a molecule.

## The molecular formula of hydrogen peroxide is H2O2 there

are two atoms of hydrogen and two atoms of oxygen in each
molecule.

Determining empirical formulae

## 21 of 29 Boardworks Ltd 2009

Percentage by mass
Elemental analysis is an analytical technique used to
determine the percentage by mass of certain elements
present in a compound.

## To work out the empirical

formula, the total mass of
the compound is
assumed to be 100 g, and
each percentage is turned
into a mass in grams.

## If necessary, the mass of any elements not given by

elemental analysis is calculated. The empirical formula of
the compound can then be calculated as normal.

## 22 of 29 Boardworks Ltd 2009

Calculating empirical formulae

## 23 of 29 Boardworks Ltd 2009

Calculating molecular formulae
The molecular formula can be found by dividing the Mr by
the relative mass of the empirical formula.
Example: What is the molecular formula of hydrogen
peroxide given that its empirical formula is HO and
the Mr is 34?
1. Determine relative mass of empirical formula:
empirical formula mass = H + O = 1.0 + 16.0 = 17
2. Divide Mr by mass of empirical formula to get a multiple:
relative molecular mass = 34 = 2
multiple = 17
mass of empirical formula
3. Multiply empirical formula by multiple:
HO 2 = H2O2

Balancing equations
An important principle in chemical reactions is that matter
cannot be created or destroyed. It is important that symbol
equations are balanced.
A balanced equation has the same number of each type of
atom on each side of the equation.

## Unbalanced: Na + Cl2 NaCl

1 sodium 2 chlorine 1 sodium 1 chlorine

## Balanced: 2Na + Cl2 2NaCl

2 sodium 2 chlorine 2 sodium 2 chlorine
This shows that two moles of sodium react with one mole
of chlorine to make two moles of sodium chloride.

What is concentration?
The concentration of a solution is a measure of how much
solute is dissolved per unit of solvent.

## amount of solute is measured in moles

volume of solvent is measured in dm3
concentration is measured in mol dm-3.
Volumes are often expressed in cm3, so a more useful
equation includes a conversion from cm3 to dm3.

Standard solutions
A standard solution is a solution of known concentration.

## Standard solutions are made by

dissolving an accurately weighed mass
of solid in a known volume of solvent

## The volumetric flask has a thin neck,

which is marked with a line so it can be
filled accurately to the correct capacity.

## The standard solution can then be used to find the

concentration of a second solution with which it reacts.
This is known as volumetric analysis or titration.

What is a titration?
A titration is a procedure used to identify the concentration
of a solution by reacting it with a solution of known
concentration and measuring the volume required for a
complete reaction.

## The number of moles in the standard

solution is calculated. Using a
balanced equation for the reaction,
the number of moles in the solution
of unknown concentration can also
be calculated.

## Once the number of moles for the

solution is known, the concentration
can be easily calculated.

What are the different types of yield?

## The percentage yield of a chemical reaction shows

how much product was actually made compared with
the amount of product that was expected.

## To calculate the percentage yield, the theoretical yield

and the actual yield must be calculated.

## The theoretical yield is the maximum mass of

product expected from the reaction, calculated
using reacting masses.

## The actual yield is the mass of product that is

actually obtained from the real chemical reaction.

## 56 of 35 Boardworks Ltd 2009

Calculating yield
The percentage yield of a reaction can be calculated using
the following equation:

## Example: What is the percentage yield of a reaction

where the theoretical yield was 75 kg but the actual
yield was 68 kg?
percentage yield = (actual yield 100) / theoretical yield
= (68 100) / 75
= 90.7%

What is atom economy?
Atom economy is another measure of the efficiency of a
chemical reaction. It is the mass of reactants that end up as
the desired product this is calculated as a percentage.

## This concept is useful to chemical industry, because it

takes into account the atoms that end up in unwanted
waste products as well as the yield of the reaction.

## This means a process that produces several worthless

by-products could have a high yield but a low atom economy.

## Reactions with a high atom economy tend to be more

environmentally friendly as they tend to produce less waste,
use fewer raw materials and use less energy.

## 58 of 35 Boardworks Ltd 2009

Calculating atom economy

## mass of desired products 100

atom economy =
total mass of reactants

## Example: What is the atom economy of a reaction

where the actual yield was 25 000 tonnes but the mass
of the reactants was 30 000 tonnes?

## mass of desired products 100

atom economy =
total mass of reactants
25 000 100
=
30 000
= 83.3%
