Answer:

44 atomic mass units (amu's) = 44 grams/mole

Explanation:

In chemical stoichiometry the mole is defined as the mass of substance containing 1 Avogadro's Number #(N_o)# of particles. 1#N_o = 6.023xx10^23 units#. For #CO_2# the weight (in grams) containing 1 #N_o of CO_2# molecules = 44 grams (to 2 sig figs).
