Welcome to Mole Conversions Made Easy, brought

to you by Ketzbook. In this video, we are going to learn how to

do mole conversions for elements, how to calculate the molar mass of a compound, and how to do

mole conversions for compounds. But before we jump into all that, you might

be wondering…what is a mole? Well, there are lots of different moles in

the world, but in chemistry, a mole is simply a large number of things. It’s kind of like a dozen, only bigger. One dozen is 12 things. One mole is 6 times 10 to the 23rd things,

that is, 600 billion trillion things. Now, that’s a lot of things! But why is the mole such a big number? Because atoms are so small. Suppose you wanted to know how many hydrogen

atoms are in one cup of water. If you were able to count all the atoms, you

would find that there are about 15 trillion trillion hydrogen atoms in a cup of water. But if we count using moles instead, that

works out to be only 25 moles of hydrogen atoms. So, we use moles to count atoms, molecules,

and other chemicals. It turns out that there is an even better

reason why 1 mole equals 6 times 10 to the 23rd things. And that is that one gram equals 6 times 10

to the 23rd atomic mass units. Let’s see what this means for a particular

element. Break out your periodic table, and look for

lithium. It is the third element. On the bottom of the square, you should see

the number 6.94. This is the atomic weight of lithium. But it is also the molar mass of lithium. So, one lithium atom has an average mass of

6.94 amu, AND one mole of lithium atoms has a mass of 6.94 grams. That give us a convenient way to count atoms

by weighing them, and the molar mass is the conversion factor between grams and moles. Let’s try a problem. How many moles of lithium are in 25 g of lithium? This is a one step unit conversion problem,

and like any unit conversion problem, the first thing you should do is write down the

quantity that you know… in this case, 25 grams of lithium. Next, multiply this by a conversion factor

fraction. Remember that for mole conversions, the molar

mass is always our conversion factor. One mole of lithium equals 6.94 grams. Because we started with grams, we put the

6.94 grams on the bottom of the fraction. Grams on the top and bottom cancel each other

out. Next, write one mole on the top of the fraction. Because the one is on the top of the fraction,

this becomes a division problem. In your calculator type 25 divided by 6.94. The answer is 3.6 moles of lithium. You may have been wondering, what happened

to the “e” in mole? Well, it turns out that the abbreviation of

mole is M-O-L. Isn’t it just wonderful how much energy

we are all going to save by not writing the “e”? Okay, time for another sample problem. What is the mass of 11.5 moles of lithium? Before we solve this problem, we realize that

mass is measured in grams, so we need to convert from moles to grams. The first thing you should do is write down

the quantity you know, 11.5 moles of lithium. Next, multiply this by a conversion factor

fraction. The molar mass of lithium is still the conversion

factor. Because we are starting with moles, one mole

goes on the bottom and 6.94 grams goes on the top. Moles on the top and bottom cancel each other

out. Because the one is on the bottom of the fraction,

in your calculator type 11.5 times 6.94. The answer works out to be 79.8 grams of lithium. That is how to convert between moles and grams

for elements, but what about molecules and compounds? Let’s start by looking at molecules made

from carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen. The molar mass of each element is typically

written on the bottom. Now in order to convert between grams and

moles for a molecule, we will need to calculate the molar mass of the molecule by adding up

the molar masses of all the atoms in the molecule. Let’s try a few examples. Carbon monoxide has one carbon and one oxygen,

so we add 12.01 for carbon and 16 for oxygen to get a molar mass of 28.01 grams per mole. In general, the units of molar mass are grams

per mole. However, it is very useful to write the molar

mass as an equality. One mole of carbon monoxide has a mass of

28.01 grams. That helps us to remember that the molar mass

is a conversion factor. Let’s try another molecule. Nitrogen is a diatomic element composed of

N2 molecules. Because there are 2 nitrogen atoms per molecule,

we multiply 14.01 by 2, so the molar mass of N2 is 28.02 grams per mole. For carbon dioxide, there is one carbon and

two oxygen atoms. So, we add 12.01 for carbon and 16 times 2

for the two oxygens, which gives us a molar mass of 44.01 grams per mole. We can do the same thing for ionic compounds,

like magnesium nitrate. The molar mass of magnesium is 24.3. Because there are two nitrates in the formula, that means we have 2 nitrogen atoms and 6 oxygen atoms. So, we add 24.3 plus 14.01 times 2 plus 16

times 6, which works out to be a molar mass of 148.3 grams per mole. Remember that we can write the molar mass

as an equality, so for magnesium nitrate, 1 mole equals 148.3 grams. That is our conversion factor between grams

and moles. So let’s go ahead and use this molar mass

to do some mole conversion problems. Let’s convert 6.35 grams of magnesium nitrate

to moles. We will solve this problem in exactly the

same way that we converted grams of lithium to moles of lithium. First, write down the quantity that we know,

6.35 grams of magnesium nitrate. Next, multiply this by a conversion factor

fraction. The molar mass of magnesium nitrate is our

conversion factor. Because we started with grams, write 148.3

grams on the bottom. Because we are solving for moles, write one

mole on the top. Grams on the top and bottom cancel out. Because the one is on the top, in your calculator

type 6.35 divided by 148.3. This works out to be 0.0428 moles of magnesium

nitrate. What if we want to know the mass of 0.369

moles of magnesium nitrate? First, write down the quantity that we know,

0.369 moles of magnesium nitrate. Next, multiply this by a conversion factor

fraction, using the molar mass as the conversion factor. Because we are starting with moles, put 1

mole on the bottom; and because we are solving for mass, put 148.3 grams on the top. Moles on the top and bottom cancel each other

out. Because the one is on the bottom of the fraction,

multiply 0.369 times 148.3, which gives us 54.7 grams of magnesium nitrate. Thanks for watching. If this video helped you at all, please give

good jop you are the teacher of the year thanks your remakable effort

Thank you for making these videos👍👍👍

Ur doing a great job

Excellent job i finally was able to understand this problem thanks!!

so whatever youre solving for goes on the top

How about questions like these? I understand what's in the video but not this… is it a whole different concept?

How many moles of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) will be produced from the complete reaction of 15.0 g of sodium

2Na+2H2O->2NaOH+H2

Can you plz make a video of mole to volume and volume to moles

Thankyou! I probably wont be dropping out of biology now!

This has made my life so much easier. Thank you so much!! You've saved my chem grade!!

Your videos deserve more credit! Thank you so much for helping

Thank you very much for this! You made it super simple, thanks!

I have been struggling with this concept for like 3 weeks thanks for making more understandable you are a grade saver!!!!!!!

Awesome thank you! Just need to slow it down a little for dummies like me!! lol

omg thank you so much this was just a life saver for me!

So helpful

The explanation in this video on this subject was very helpful. It helped my son understand a whole lot easier how to do the conversions. I think he did an awesome job breaking this down. Thank you.

It really helped me a lot

. Thanku 😇

THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH

Thankuu so muchhh for dis video my doubt is clear now nd i able to solve the question thnkku so much ones again💐😊

i request u to do videos on thermodynamics

Thanks bro. It really helps!

yes , good

it made me easier to do my homework

You are the best

You just saved my ass for my chemistry class! Thanks a bunch!

Thank you so much!! My chemistry teacher is new to teaching, and he over explained this and I got really confused, and so did most of my class. Everyone was asking each other, "Do you get this?" and people we always say no, including me. My friend told my teacher she had no idea how to do it he re-explained it but it didn't help at all cuz the way he explained it was super confusing, so I just decided to look it up on youtube, and this video popped up, so I watched it, and wow! Converting moles is so much easier now! I didn't realize it was so simple, and I was over here thinking I was gonna fail chemistry. Thanks for the help 😀

5:08 I'm really confuse here, why 6?

Thanks

EVERYTHING MAKES SO MUCH SENSE NOW. OH MY GOODNESS THANK YOU YOU HAVE SAVED ME

Thanks so much! So helpful!

hahahahaha saving time by not writing the letter 'e'. Awesome bro

thank you!!

I hope eyebrow invests his time with you

Not all heroes wear capes

I was struggling with these conversions in my chem course but this makes everything seem so simple now! Thanks!

Sprb nice videos easy to understand

I thought mole were 6.02 x 10^23

Bless your soul

Omg thank you 🙏this is so helpful. I watched so many other videos and I got so confused. Now I understand for once😂

TYSM man 💗💗💗

Bro I have a unit exam tomorrow and this video is a life saver

The only one who understood me.

Thank you ❤️❤️

You really helped me understand, way better than any teacher. I might even have to teach the class.

Great video thank you.

THANK YOU SO MUCH

Great job

I watched many videos all were so confusing but this one saved me.

thank u so much ily

really teaching myself moles the night before my final!!!

Th best video ever! I have a quiz tomorrow and you saved my grade,

Thank you so much, your videos do help a lot. 😃

Thanks for this video! I hope it saves my chemistry grade for tomorrow’s test! It sucks because we are doing seven different ways all on one test! It includes stuff about STP, empirical formulas, percent composition, molecular formulas, ugh, half the time I don’t even know where to write the numbers at but I think you explained it sooo well! Thanks for the help!

My chemistry teacher is a long term sub, used to teach college, retired FBI agent and he is so bad and explaining and teaching this stuff. Thank you!

I really liked how you mentioned to write the molar mass as an equality, it helped me connect where to put the numbers when converting!

You just saved my grade in Chemistry!!!

Thank you!! ❤

very helpful!!

This has made my life so much easier. Thank you so much!! I kept my grade even now!!!

n=m/M makes every conversion problem so easy. Thank you. Now when I fill in the blanks, its just a simple algebra problem. Why do Chemists ignore the easy???You must be a mathematician.

I just watched this before a test and he explained it better than my teacher the whole section

this helps so much

Best video

Your answer was wrong

But I understand too

Watching these before the exams!

THANK YOU 🙏 You just explained in 7 minutes what my teacher couldn’t explain in a week and a half!! You just saved my chem grade!!

Thanx

Yoooo

thank u, pls keep up more chemistry videos

Short and concise, very well explained, and clean and organized, THANK YOUUU 🤩

Thanks bro!

Who else has a shit chemistry teacher and this man just saved you?

i have struggled with this mole thing 4 longer than 6 months. then this guy explained it in 7 min and all the sudden it makes sense…. ooff…

this guy should get an award for this >o<

If you're going to round numbers, especially in a video designed to introduce/simplify a topic, you should tell people first. Otherwise, nice explanation.

hi can you be my teacher

I really enjoyed this video your voice calms me down

ur explanation removed all of my doubts regarding mole concept. tq…

💙💯

Thank u for saving my life

u explained this better than my teacher in a 7-minute video than she did throughout the whole semester, thank you so much!

Teacher: explains it horribly

7 minute video: about to end this man’s whole career

Thank you for making this video! It really helped me on my quiz☺️☺️

you need to teach the teachers how to teach like you. yu are straight to the point and amazing!!!! THANK YOU

if 1 gram is 1 mole then the amu calculation of an element is just the amu * quantity, why did a mole even come into play

Excellent explanation.

You just saved my test grade

Please make more about future chapters in chemistry

where was the 148.3 coming from? can anyway tell me?

This has both captions and an explanation of moles made easy? Fuck man, I'm gonna keep you around during pre-med

May God bless you

Someone please give this guy a prize, he has saved soo many lives.

i was terrified for my chem test because my teacher didn’t really explain it well, now i finally get it and i’m about to send this to all my friends😂

OMMGGG THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH! YOU'RE AMAZING!!

bruh fr fr my teacher needs to start playing thesse YT vids instead of teaching

You basically saved my IB Diploma

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS!!! I literally have a chemistry test tomorrow about this and I had no clue how to convert, but after watching this I completely understand now.

THANK YOU HOLY FUCK

PROFESSOR, USE LAMENS TERMS! GOD DAMNIT!

thank you good sir

Thank u 🙏 😇
