#1**+5 **

I posted this response to someone else who was converting 4.87*10^22 atoms of Carbon to Grams. It should serve as a good example of how to convert between the three. Note that all units being converted are cancelled out.

Here's the link to the question: http://web2.0calc.com/questions/how-much-carbon-is-in-4-87-10-22

*Assuming that you're speaking in units of atoms, you can convert them like so:*

* *

$$Grams \Leftrightarrow Mols \Leftrightarrow Atoms$$

* *

*Using Avogadro's Constant, we know that 1 mol = 6.022 x 10^23 atoms, allowing us to convert from atoms to mols:*

* *

$$\left({\mathtt{4.87}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{10}}}^{{\mathtt{22}}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{atomsC}}\right){\mathtt{\,\times\,}}\left({\frac{\left({\mathtt{1}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{molC}}\right)}{\left({\mathtt{6.022}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{{\mathtt{10}}}^{{\mathtt{23}}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{atomsC}}\right)}}\right) = {\mathtt{0.808\: \!7}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{molsC}}$$

* *

*To get grams, we convert again only from mols, to grams. Knowing that 1 molC = 12.00gC we get:*

* *

$${\mathtt{0.808\: \!7}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{molsC}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}\left({\frac{\left({\mathtt{12}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{gC}}\right)}{\left({\mathtt{1}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{molC}}\right)}}\right) = {\mathtt{9.077}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{gC}}$$
