Answer to Question #30473 in Inorganic Chemistry for sonya
Determine the representative particles in each substance?
A.) 4.45 mol of C6H12O6
B.) 0.250 mol of KNO3
C.) 2.24 mol of H2
D.) 9.56 mol of Zn
A representative particle is the smallest unit of a substance that can be broken down without altering the composition. There are three types of particles: molecules, structural units(like ions) and atoms. If we have covalent bonded substance - representative particle will be molecule. When we have some chemical element - this particle is atom. When we have ionic compound - representative particles are ions. A.) molecules of glucose B.) ions K+ and NO3- C.) molecules of H2 D.) atoms of Zn
