For dimensional analysis problems such as this, you always want to make sure the units that you don't need anymore cancel out. If you keep that idea in mind you should always end up with the correct value and units!

I must also add that cobalt (Co) has a molar mass of 58.93 g/mol.

To solve we just do this:

#0.0489cancel"mol"xx(58.93g)/(1cancel"mol")# = 2.88 g of Co
