Moles of atoms/photons

Postby Aaina 1D » Mon Oct 26, 2020 10:02 pm

In general, when the question asks to calculate the number of moles of atoms or moles of photons, do you multiply by Avagadro's constant or divide by it?

I'm not sure if this answers your question, but if you have 1 e-, you would divide by 6.022*10^23 to find the moles of e-

It depends on the problem, like what you're given and what you're converting to.

It really does depend on the question but if you solve for an amount of atoms/photons and you're trying to convert it to moles, you would most likely divide by Avogadro's number.
