Answer:

The molar mass of glucose is #(6xx12.011+12xx1.0794+6xx15.99)*g*mol^(-1)#. You have a milligram mass.

Explanation:

So, in 1 mol there are Avogadro's number of molecules, i.e. #6.022xx10^(23) mol^-1# #=# #N_A#.

So onto our calculation:

#(1.00xx10^(-3)cancel(g)xxN_A*"molecules"*cancel(mol^-1))/((6xx12.011+12xx1.0794+6xx15.99)*cancel(g*mol^(-1))# #=#

#?? # glucose molecules.
