# How many moles of sulfur are in 1.81 * 10^24 atoms of sulfur?

Jun 1, 2016

Approx. $3$ $m o l$.

#### Explanation:

In $1$ $\text{mole}$ of sulfur ATOMS, there are $6.022140857 \left(74\right) \times {10}^{23}$ individual sulfur atoms.

So we take the ratio:

$\left(1.81 \times {10}^{24} {\text{ sulfur atoms")/(6.022xx10^23" sulfur atoms mol}}^{-} 1\right)$ $=$ ??*mol

Note that elemental sulfur is likely the ${S}_{8}$ molecule. Here I have dealt with sulfur atoms.
