Answer:

Approx. #5.8xxN_Axx24#

Explanation:

#N_A# specifies #"Avogadro's number"# #-=# #6.022xx10^23*mol^-1#. And #"the mole"# this is simply another collective number like a dozen, or a score, or a gross........

And we gots #5.78*mol# of glucose.......

And thus the number of atoms is........

#5.78xx{6_"carbon atoms"+12_"hydrogen atoms"+6_"oxygen atoms"}xxN_A#

#138.72xxN_A# atoms in total........

Can you tell me the mass of this number of atoms? This is the next question you will be asked.
