Why the number of atoms of bromine in 1 mole Br₂ is not equal to Avogadro's number?
Because Bromine is a diatomic element.
Bromine is a diatomic element, therefore, in
Why not? Because the bromine molecule is made of
I could have Avogadro's number of any species: electrons, protons, atoms, molecules. Here I have a 1 mole of bromine molecules . Each bromine molecule consists of 2 atoms of bromine . So in my mole of molecules I have
Bromine is a diatomic molecule, i.e, has two atoms.
I mole or bromine refers to 6×10^23 molecules of bromine.
But 1 molecule of bromine has 2 atoms.
Hence the atom count will be exactly twice.
