    You divide it by the molecular weight. Say you had 2.325 g of Carbon, the molecular weight of Carbon is 12.011 g/mole, so you divide 2.325 by 12.011 and you get .194 moles. Just a tip, look at what you have, in this case grams, and what you want, moles, and look at what has grams and moles as it's value, atomic weight. Next since you need you answer to be moles you will have to put the atomic weight in the denominator, that brings the moles to the top and lets you cancel the grams, leaving you with moles. Hope that helps.

    Depends on what element you are converting.

    Divide this number by the atomic number of your element and you get moles. For example He is 4. So 2.325 / 4 = 0.581 moles He

    always remember, no of moles = mass / molar mass of that particular substance.

    n= m/Mr
