Im having trouble with part b of the question. I found the grams in the H2O molecule to be 2.992x10^-23 but don't know how to approach finding the molecule number.

1: convert 1kg to 1000 g

2: you'll need to convert first to moles
(value given of H20 in grams * 1 Mol H20) / (atomic mass of H20g) atomic mass found by using periodic table

3: Now we have the number of H20 moles so we can use Avogadro's Number (molecules/moles) to convert moles to molecules by multiplying it - causes the moles to cancel out and leaving us with our value in molecules.

Hope this helps

Basically for part b, divide 1000g by the molar mass of H2O which is 18.02 g X mol^-1. Then multiply that by Avogadro's number, 6.022x10^23 moles X mol^-1. And that should get you your answer.
This is how it looks like:
(1000g/18.02 g X mol^-1)(6.022x10^23 moles X mol^-1) = 3.34 x 10^25 moles
