Answer:

258 atoms, #1.67 x 10^26# amu

Explanation:

These are just conversions. Set up the equation so that you end up with the UNIT you desire for an answer, and the math will be correct.

#(1/32.07)# (atom/amu) * (8274) amu = 258 atoms#

#(32.07)# (amu/atom) * #5.213 x 10^24# atoms = #1.67 x 10^26# amu
