4.000 mol Cl has a mass of 141.8 g.
4.000 mol Al has a mass of 107.9 g.


The molar mass of an element is its atomic weight (relative atomic mass) on the periodic table in g/mol.

Molar masses
#"Cl":##"35.45 g/mol"#
#"Al":##"26.98 g/mol"#

The molar mass is the mass of one mole of a substance. Multiply the molar mass times 4.000 mol to get the mass of 4.000 mol of each element.

#4.000"mol Cl"xx(35.45"g Cl")/(1"mol Cl")="141.8 g Cl"#

#4.000"mol Al"xx(26.98"g Al")/(1"mol Al")="107.9 g Al"#
