Converting grams to moles should not be too problematic, especially when you know what to do.

These are some of the things that you can do:

• Determine how many grams are given in the problem that you need to solve.

• Look for the molar mass of the substance which you can get by calculating it.

• Divide the grams by the number of moles so that you can get the answer.

• Remember that the numbers will also change depending on the substance that you are trying to compute.

Follow all of these steps, and you will be able to convert grams to moles whenever you would need it.

Converting grams to moles may be something that is considered to be a bit complicated, especially since this is not something that you do every day.

These are the steps that you have to take to do this process:

• Look at the atomic mass that you can find on the periodic table.
• Use the formula mass so that you will know the different atoms that you can find in the compound.
• Subscripts will say the number of atoms that are available.
• Multiply the number of atoms that are available by the atomic mass.
• Make sure that you will do all of these until you are able to get the right number of grams per mole.

Once you already have the conversion factor, you will be able to do this conversion every time you would need to do so.

In chemistry, moles are a unit of measurement. They account for the various types of elements that are in a chemical compound. In some of the compounds, the numbers are given in grams. It is best for those studying chemistry to have them in moles, in which a conversion would need to take place.

The following steps are how to convert grams to moles.

• First, identify the amount of grams that are in the problem.

• Then, find the substance's molar mass.

• Lastly, divide the grams from the first step, by the molar mass in the second step to find the answer.
