Answer:

Approx. #1.5*g#.

Explanation:

We work out (i) the amount of moles of sugar:

#(22.60*g)/(180.16*g*mol^-1)# #=# #0.1254*mol#

and (ii), the equivalent mass of hydrogen in this molar quantity:

#0.1254*molxx12xx1.00794*g*mol^-1# #=# #??g#.

Why did I multiply the molar quantity of sugar by #12#?
