Answer:

Approx. #4xx10^24# hydrogen atoms............

Explanation:

We work out the molar quantity of methane.....

#"Moles of methane"=(25.3*g)/(16.04*g*mol^-1)=1.584*mol#.

And since there are 4 mole of hydrogen ATOMS per mole of methane......we gots......

#1.584*molxx4*mol*H*mol^-1*"methane"#

#6.33*mol# #"hydrogen atoms......"#

And an actual number of......

#6.33*molxx6.022xx10^23*mol^-1="How many hydrogen atoms?"#
