So are there 12 moles in 1 carbon atom?
Not quite, the dozen thing was to say that its a name for a number.So 1 carbon atom is a fraction of a mole: 1/6.022x10(23).If you had 6.022x10(23) carbon atoms, then you would have one mole.
A mole is a name given to represent an amount of substance; 1 mole = 6.02x10^23 particles (Avogadro’s number - the term mole is the Avogadro number of particles (atoms, molecules, formulae, ions or electrons) in a substance). Abbreviated to mol. The RAM of any element in grams contains 1 mol of atoms of that element. (For example, 12g of carbon = 1 mol).The Mr of a compound in grams contains 1 mol of that compound. (For example, 18g of water = 1 mol, Mr of water is 16+1+1)This is what our teach gave us, word for word. :)
