The answer is 0.600 mol S 32.06 g S/mol S 19.2 g S, which is more precise.
The conversion pathway is g S and the conversion factor is 1 mol S. The conversion factor is the mass that is inverted.
The quantity in moles from part (a) is converted to mol S by the conversion factor.

The required conversions can either be carried out in a stepwise fashion or combined into a single line calculation.
Let's take a stepwise approach.
We convert from mL milk to g K first.
We convert frommol K to atoms K with 39.10 g K.

The main element in steel is iron.
A key element is carbon.
The ball bearing has a small amount of carbon.
The goal is to determine the number of carbon-13 atoms in a ball bearing.
The point of the problem is that we can relate number of atoms to mass by using Avogadro's constant.
The first thing to do is to determine the ball bearing's volume.
The density of steel along with the percent composition is used to determine the mass of carbon present.
The third step uses the molar mass of carbon to convert grams of carbon to moles of carbon; Avogadro's constant is used to convert moles of carbon to the number of carbon atoms.
