Converting Daltons to g/mol
One Dalton is one AMU (atomic Mass Unit).
One AMU is 1/12th of the weight of a Carbon 12 Atom.
One Mole is the molecular weight expressed as grams - so a mole of Carbon 12 is BY
DEFINITION exactly 12 grams.
The number of atoms in a mole is equal to Avogadro's number (6.023 x 10^23)
If you think about these facts using Carbon 12 as an example, you see that it has a mass of
12 Daltons, and also weighs 12g/mol.
The simple answer is, to convert from Daltons to g/mol, MULTIPLY BY ONE.
