Hon Chemistry 11-8-22 Moles, Molar Mass & Avogadro’s Number

HON CHEMISTRY: So….you think if his work helped us understand something as significant as the number of something in a mole they might name something after him? They did! Go figure! Another name for the number of anything in a mole is Avogadro’s Number. That would be how many?

You caught on super fast today! Remember, it’s all in terms of one mole. The mass of one mole, the molar mass, is the average atomic mass of the element in grams (periodic table). And the number of atoms in one mole is …. well you know that. Speaking of moles, isn’t he cute? Well, beauty being in the eye of the beholder and all. Hmmmm………

  1. This week I struggled with memorizing the polyatomic ions. I was overwhelmed by them but I took a deep breath and took it step by step. I gave myself enough time to learn them before the quiz and I can confidently say that I know them now.

  2. This week i struggled with being prepared for class. I didn’t study for as long as i should have and i didn’t print off the sheet we needed. I will try to focus more and finish my homework.

  3. Recently certain scientists have been discussing if the creation of an element called vibranium is possible. This element is most popular for its role in marvel movies. In the movies it is seen to do many things such as medicine to conducting electricity. The only way for us to discover such an element would be from space. However scientists claim that this is very unlikely. If we were to create such an element, this metal would have to practically be able to do anything.

  4. Scientists have recently discovered the closest black hole known to Earth, which is only 1,560 light years away. It has been given the name Gaia BH1 and is found to be about 10 times the mass of the sun. The next closest black hole is 3,200 light years away from Earth, but scientists believe that in the future other black holes will be discovered, possibly even closer to Earth than Gaia BH1.


  5. Recently, astrophysicist have used the Gaia spacecraft to discover new black holes, specifically the black hole that is closest to earth. Stars near a black hole will move according to the gravity of the black hole, and so using the stars we can find black holes. The nearest black hole to earth is just 1,560 light-years from earth. It’s name is Gaia BH1, and it’s ten times the mass of the sun.

  6. In the South China sea, a violent underwater eruption triggered a chain of tsunamis that went around the world. The volcano’s name is Hunga Tonga–Hunga Ha’apai and it launched a vast amount of water upward. One tsunami reached a high as the Statue of Liberty, about 305 feet high.

  7. The chemical signature of unknown origins located in the trunks of trees has become even more puzzling. In the past years, scientists have discovered six bursts of radiation, called Miyake events. Scientists analyzed all available tree ring data on the six miyake events using computer simulations of earth’s carbon cycle. The researchers found no correlation between the miyake events and any phase of the solar cycle. So if the solar flares did cause the events then trees nearer the poles should contain higher levels of miyake event radiation but they do not.


  8. This week I struggled with staying focused in class. I tend to pay less attention once I understand the lesson. I can fix this by writing more during class and focusing on each question that is asked even if I am not the one answering the question.

  9. Recent research has shown that only 1/3 of lakes are blue. The same researchers have conducted that just a few degrees will make the lakes change to brown or green. The color also shows the ecosystem life and health, so these colors don’t mean good things. A group of scientists will be using cameras and photos from the past to see how they change in the future aswell.
