# Question: How many moles are in Ki?

Contents

## How many particles are there in one mole of potassium iodide?

The mole, abbreviated mol, is an SI unit which measures the number of particles in a specific substance. One mole is equal to 6.02214179×1023 atoms, or other elementary units such as molecules.

## How many moles are in KCl?

One mol of KCl is equal to 74.6 grams (from the periodic chart, the gram-atomic mass of potassium is 39.0 and that of chlorine is 35.5. Add together for the gram-molecular mass of 74.6). If you took 74.6 grams of KCl and diluted this to one liter with water, you would have a 1.00 M KCl solution.

## How many moles are in 166 grams of KI?

First, lets find the molar mass of KI: 39.1 g (K) + 126.9 g (I) = 166.0 g KI. Now we want to find the amount of K in KI, which can be solved by calculating K molar mass / KI molar mass, which means 39.1 g K / 166.0 g KI. We get 23.55%. In one mole or 166 g of KI, 23.55% of it is K.

## Is Ki ionic or covalent?

Potassium iodide (KI) forms an ionic bond. Potassium and iodine have very different electronegativities. The two atoms would form an ionic bond since ionic bonds form between atoms with a large difference in electronegativity (difference>1.7 using the Pauling scale will result in an ionic bond).

## How many molecules are in 1 mole of molecules?

One mole (abbreviated mol) is equal to 6.022×1023 molecular entities (Avogadro’s number), and each element has a different molar mass depending on the weight of 6.022×1023 of its atoms (1 mole).

## What is the numerical value of mole?

One mole of a substance is equal to 6.022 × 10²³ units of that substance (such as atoms, molecules, or ions). The number 6.022 × 10²³ is known as Avogadro’s number or Avogadro’s constant.
