Bloody heavy moles!
« on: 28/05/2006 17:51:00 »
1 mole of CO2 weighs 44grams? erm... are you sure?

1 mole = 6 atoms (I think you said), so 6 atoms of CO2 weighs almost as much as a small jar of coffee?

P.S. Flatulence again! xx(

Not quite.

1 mole of carbon dioxide does indeed weigh 44g.

Relative atomic mass (RAM) carbon (C) = 12g per mole
Relative atomic mass (RAM) oxygen (O) = 16g per mole

Relative Molecular Mass of CO2 = 12 + (2 x 16 = 32) = 44g per mole.

Avogadro's number is the number of particles in 1 mole of a substance. It equals 6.02 x 10^23. In other words 6 followed by 23 zeros.

So 44g of carbon dioxide contains 6.02 x 10^23 molecules of the gas, and not 6! Otherwise they're very heavy atoms!

Thanks for the information...wow!  I am very impressed!
Do you know how much a Beaver weighs?

How much would a mole weigh if you pumped it full of CO2?

LOL  What a visual I have going on here?  Now I am wondering how much a beaver would weigh if you pumped him full of CO2?

If you know the comparative weights of CO2 & flatulence you can probably work it out :D

LOL Oh boy, now you are talking a language that I care not to learn, especially from a beaver!  LOL  I am not sure if I really want to know that information or not...inorganic gas with carbon and oxygen produced with composting then mix it with flatulence...starting to get a bit nauseous!  LOL  Darn Beavers!  Maybe we should find out how much a beaver weighs as I am sure it would be a heavier atom...we could just fill you up with some h2o instead since you are a beaver and you like dam water....hehe

Wow!  That is a pretty good size Beaver Neil!  Maybe we should auction this one off or put him in the fair to earn a buck or two...there are places in the world where he could bring a good penny or two!

...Just eat lots of Pizza (Deep Pam with Stuffed Crust)...and when you get tired of Pizza fold them over to make Calzone.

Good luck in putting on the weight.....I have the reverse problem :(

The mole were takes place on any area of the body skin. This mole are black in color and are of tow types , the bumped an and the flat mole. The mole removal surgery is the best option to get removed the mole. For more information visit to spamremovalguide.com.
