## Chemistry formulas for Atoms, Molecules and Chemical Arithmetic Part I

##
__Atomic Weight related Chemical Formulas__

· Atomic Weight of an Element = Weight of an average Atom of that Element/ (1/12)x Mass of an element of C

^{12}
· 1 a.m.u. = 1.66x10

^{-24}g
· Atomic Weight = Gram Atomic Weight (GAW)

· 1 Gram Atomic Weight (GAW) of every element contains 6.023x10

^{23}atoms of that element.
· No. of gram of an element = weight of element in gram/ Gram Atomic Weight (GAW) of that element

### Methods of Determining Atomic Weight

#### i. Dulong and Pettits Method:

Applicable only for solid elements except Be, B, C, Si.

· Atomic Weight x Specific Heat = 6.4 (app.)

· Atomic Weight (app.) = 6.4/ Specific Heat (in Calories)

· Exact Atomic Weight = Equivalent Weight x Valency

· Valency = App. Atomic Weight / Equivalent Weight

#### ii. Vapour Density Method:

Applicable only for those elements whose chlorides are volatile.

· Valency of the Element = Molecular Weight of Chloride / Equivalent Weight of Chloride

· Valency of the Element = (2 x V.D. of Chloride) / (Equivalent Weight of Metal + 35.5)

Where, V.D. = Vapour Density

· Atomic Weight = Equivalent Weight of Metal x Valency

#### iii. Specific Heat Method:

Applicable only for Gases.

· Cp/Cv for monoatomic gases = 1.66

· Cp/Cv for diatomic gases = 1.40

· Cp/Cv for triatomic gases = 1.33

· Atomic Weight of Gaseous Element = Molecular Weight/ Atomicity

Where, Atomicity is number of atoms present in a molecule of a gaseous element. For example atomicity of Inert Gas is 1, atomicity of Ozone is 3, atomicity of H

_{2}N_{2}O_{2}X_{2}is 2, and atomicity of Sulphur is 8.#### iv. Volatile Chloride Formation Method:

· Atomic Weight of the Element = Equivalent Weight (Z) x Valency (x)

#### v. Isomorphism Method:

This method based on law of Isomorphism. According to law of Isomorphism, “Compounds having identical crystal structure have similar constitution and chemical formula”

· Atomic Weight = Equivalent Weight x Valency

· Weight of Element A that combines with certain weight of other elements/Weight of Element B that combines with the same weight of other elements = Atomic Weight of A / Atomic Weight of B

##
__Molecular Weight related Chemical Formulas__

· Molecular Weight = Weight of 1 Molecule of the Substance/ (1/12)x Weight of 1 atom of C

^{12}
· Actual Weight of 1 Molecule = Molecular Weight x 1.66x10

^{-24}g### Methods of Determining Atomic Weight

#### 1. Diffusion Method:

Applicable only for gases.

·

Where, r

_{1}& r_{2}is rate of diffusion of gases and M_{1 }& M_{2}is Molecular Weight.#### 2. Vapour Density Method:

Applicable only for gases.

· Molecular Weight = 2 x Vapour Density

#### 3. Victor Mayer Method:

Applicable only for volatile liquids and solids.

· Molecular Weight of a substance = 22400 ml of vapour of a substance at STP

##
__Equivalent Weight related Chemical Formulas__

· No. of Gram Equivalent Weight = Weight of the substance in gram/ Gram Equivalent Weight of the substance

· Equivalent Weight of an Element = Atomic Weight/ Valency

· Equivalent Weight of an Acid = Molecular Weight/ Basicity

· Equivalent Weight of an Base = Molecular Weight/ Acidity

· Equivalent Weight of a Salt = Formula Weight/ Total Positive or Negative Charge

· Equivalent Weight of a Reducing Agent = Formula Weight/ No. of electrons lost per molecule or Total change in Oxidation Number

· Equivalent Weight of an Oxidising Agent = Formula Weight/ No. of electrons gained per molecule or Total change in Oxidation Number

· Equivalent Weight of Radicals = Formula Weight of Radical/ No. of units of Charge.....
