We have given that one mole of carbon atom weighs 12 g.
A mole is defined as exactly equal to 6.022 × 1023 atoms.
So, we know that a mole of carbon contains 6.022 × 1023 atoms.
Therefore, we can write the mass of 6.022 × 1023 atoms = 12 g.
Using the unitary method to find the mass of 1 atom of carbon in grams. So, we can write as below-
So, now mass of 1 atom of carbon will be =12 / (6.022 × 1023) = 1.993 × 10−23 g
Hence, the mass in grams of 1 atom of carbon is 1.993 × 10−23g.
If we have to find the mass of 2 atoms or n number of carbon atoms, the same way we can proceed to find the mass in grams of the carbon atoms.
