- An amount of substance containing 6.02 × 10
^{23}particles is called a**mole**(often abbreviated to mol). - 6.02 × 10
^{23}is called the**Avogadro Constant**or Avogadro's Number.

*Example: *

One mole of carbon contains 6.02 × 10^{23} of carbon atoms.

One mole of oxygen contains 6.02 × 10^{23} of oxygen molecules

- The mass of one mole of a substance is called the
**molar mass**. - The molar mass of a substance is equal to its relative formula mass in grams.

What is the mass of 1 mole of carbon?

*Solution: *

The mass of 1 mole of carbon = relative formula mass of carbon = 12 grams

What is the molar mass of calcium carbonate (CaCO

*Solution: *

**Step 1:** Look up the relative atomic masses of the atoms from the periodic table.

Relative atomic mass (rounded to the nearest whole number):

Ca = 40, C = 12, O = 16

**Step 2: **Calculate the relative formula mass.

Calcium carbonate (CaCO_{3}) contains one calcium atom, one carbon atom and three oxygen atoms.

Relative formula mass = 40 + 12 + (3 × 16) = 100

**Step 3: **Express the relative formula mass in grams per mole.

The molar mass of ethanol is 100 g/mol

*Example: *

What is the molar mass of ethanol (C_{2}H_{5}OH)?

*Solution: *

**Step 1: **Look up the relative atomic masses of the atoms from the periodic table.

Relative atomic mass (rounded to the nearest whole number):

H = 1, C = 12, O = 16

**Step 2: **Calculate the relative formula mass.

Ethanol (C_{2}H_{5}OH) contains two carbon atoms, six hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom.

Relative formula mass = (2 × 12) + (6 × 1) + 16 = 46

**Step 3: **Express the relative formula mass in grams per mole.

The molar mass of ethanol is 46 g/mol
