Total atomic mass in a compound.
1 of 9
What are moles?
Equal to it's relative formula mass in grams.
2 of 9
How do you calculate moles?
Number of moles = mass in grams (of element or compound) / relative formula mass
3 of 9
How do you calculate percentage mass of an element in a calculate?
% mass = (relative atomic mass x no. atoms (of that element) / relative formula mass (of whole compound)) X100

How do you calculate masses in reactions?
Write out the balenced equation, work out the relative formula mass for the two bits you want, divide to get one then multiply to get all.
