# A chemist measures 340 grams of sodium acetate. What is this in kilograms?

Jun 14, 2016

#### Answer:

$0.340 \cdot k g$

#### Explanation:

$1 \cdot k g = 1 \times {10}^{3} g$. The $\text{kilo}$ prefix means ${10}^{3}$.

And thus $\frac{340 \cdot g}{1000 \cdot g \cdot k {g}^{-} 1}$ $=$ $0.340 \cdot k g$, with respect to $\text{sodium acetate}$. How many moles of $\text{sodium acetate}$ does this represent?
