Answer:

We use the molar quantity..........and get approx. #1xx10^24# molecules of #O_2#.

Explanation:

We know that #"Avogadro's Number"#, #N_A-=6.022xx10^23*mol#.

And so to find the number of oxygen MOLECULES, we divide the mass by the molar mass, and multiply by #"Avogadro's Number"#.

#"Number of oxygen molecules.........."#

#=((0.0032*kg)/(0.018*kg*mol^-1))xx6.022xx10^23*"molecules"*mol^-1=??"molecules"#
