# Determine the number of grams in a mole of...?

Determine the number of grams in a mole of each of the following gases.
(a) nitrogen

(b) ozone

(c) xenon

We have to determine the molar mass of the following gases

a ) nitrogen is N2 . Molar mass =14 + 14 = 28 g/mol so 1 mole weights 28 g

b) ozone is O3 . Molar mass = 16 + 16+ 16 = 48 g/mol so 1 mole weights 48 g

c ) Xe . Atomic mass = 131.3 g/mol so 1 mole weights 131.3 g
By definition, the molar mass is the mass of a mole of a given element / compound.

Therefore since:

M=m/n
where M = molar mass, m = mass, n = moles

then

m=nM

Now, gaseous Nitrogen is a bimolecular gas, N2, Ozone is trimolecular O3 and Xenon is unimolecular Xe.

Do the math.
you need to remember that :
number of moles = mass / molar mass or:
n = m/Mw
n=1mole
Mw = N2= 14*2 = 28g/mole
m=1mol*28g/mole=28g
N2>>2*14.0067=28.0134g/mol

O3>>3*15.9994=47.9982g/mol

Xe>>131.30g/mol
