## Grams to Moles Problems

Let us discuss the solved problems of gram to mole conversion.

### Solved Examples

Question 1: Convert 56g of water into moles?

Solution:

Given mass of water is 56g. Since water is a molecule, molecular mass is considered instead of atomic mass for this calculation.
Molecular mass of water = 18.015g/mol
Grams to moles conversion equation is,

Moles = $\frac{Mass}{Atomic\ weight}$

Moles = $\frac{56}{18.015}$ = 3.10 mol

Question 2: Convert 30g of oxygen into corresponding moles?

Solution:

Given mass of oxygen is 30g.
Atomic weight of oxygen = 16g/mol
Grams to moles conversion equation is,

Moles = $\frac{Mass}{Atomic\ weight}$

Moles = $\frac{30}{16}$ = 1.875 mol
