Answer:

#9.01" g"#.

Explanation:

A mole is defined as the amount of a substance whose mass in grams equals the atomic, molecular, or formula-unit mass in atomic mass units.

Example 1: Water (#"H"_2"O"#) has two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom per molecule. The two hydrogen atoms each have an atomic mass of #1.008#, the oxygen atom has an atomic mass of #15.999#, the sum for all three atoms is #18.015#. So a mole of water molecules has a mass of #18.015" g"#.

Example 2: Beryllium has an aromuc mass of #9.01#. So a mole of beryllium atoms has a mass of #9. 01" g"#.
