What is the number of atoms in 5g Pb ?

You need to evaluate the number of atoms in 5g of lead, hence, you need to determine the number of moles, such that:
`m_(Pb) = Pb(g)*1 (m_(Pb))/(Pb(g))`
`m_(Pb) = 5/207.2 => m_(Pb) = 0.024`
You need to perform the conversion from moles to number of atoms, using Avogadro's number,`6.023*10^23` , such that:
atoms of `Pb = m_(Pb)*6.023*10^23`
atoms of `Pb = 0.024*6.023*10^23`
atoms of `Pb = 1.44*10^22`
Hence, evaluating the number of atoms in 5g Pb yields atoms of `Pb = 1.44*10^22` .
