65lb 2 kg 1 1 kg This calculation doesn’t simplify your life at all, so it’s clearly the wrong choice. If you end up with more complicated units after employing a conversion factor, then try the calculation again, this time flipping the conversion factor. If you’re a chemistry student, you’re probably pretty familiar with the basic rules of algebra (nod your head in emphatic agreement . . good). So, you know that you can’t simply multiply one number by another and pretend that nothing happened — you altered the original quantity when you multiplied, didn’t you?

Q. A: Dr. 75 pounds and records his measurement in his lab notebook. 2 pounds in every kilogram; the assistant quickly converts the doctor’s measurement to SI units. What does she get? 35 kg. 75 lbs Notice that something very convenient just happened. Because of the way this calculation was set up, you end up with pounds on both the top and bottom of the fraction. In algebra, whenever you find the same quantity in a numerator and in a denominator, you can cancel them out. Canceling out the pounds is a lovely bit of algebra, because you didn’t want them around anyway.

Enter what you find in the first column. To fill in the second and third columns, read the atomic number and mass number from the lower left and upper left of the chemical symbols given in the question. The atomic number equals the number of protons; the number of electrons is the same as the number of protons, because elements have zero overall charge. So, fill in the fourth and fifth columns with the same numbers you entered in column two. Lastly, subtract the atomic number from the mass number to get the number of neutrons, and enter that value into column six.
