##### 1 Answer

AMU, or Atomic Mass Unit, is a way of bridging the gap between grams and something so small we cant even see.

Lets take Carbon,

That means that one carbon atom weighs 12 AMU.

To make it simple, 1 Mole of Carbon is just 12 grams of it. A mole is the amount of atoms in exactly 12 grams of Carbon.

Remember, Carbon's atomic mass, or AMU, is 12.

If you want to get technical, 1 Mole equals

That means that in 1 Mole of Carbon, or 12 grams of carbon, there are 602,200,000,000,000,000,000,000 atoms of Carbon (

So if you have 1 Mole of Nitrogen, that means that you have 14 grams of Nitrogen.

If you have 4 Moles of Sulfur, you have 128 grams of Sulfur.

Now, lets do it the other way.

If you have 500 grams of Phosphorous, you have...

If you have 8,473 grams of Lead, you have.....
