Introduction
Mole
The mole is a unit of measurement for
the amount of substance or chemical
amount.
Defined as the amount of substance
that contains as many elementary
entities (atoms, molecules, ions,
electrons etc.) as there are atoms in
12g of the isotope carbon-12.
4
The Mole Concept

 One mole of carbon-12 atom has a


mass of exactly 12.000 grams and
contains 6.02 x 1023 atoms.

 The number of entities / particles in one


mole of substance is called the
Avogadro's number.
NA = 6.02 x 1023 mol-1

numerically equal to its relative mass

Empirical formula is a chemical formula
that shows the simplest ratio of atoms of
the elements present in a compound.
Molecular formula is a chemical formula
that shows the actual number of atoms
of each element in a molecule.

20
Empirical Formulae
and

The relationship between empirical
formula and molecular formula is :
Molecular formula = (Empirical
