Answer

1 mole of H atoms = 1 g

1 mole of H atoms = 6.022 × 1023 atoms.

Mass of 6.022 x 1023 atoms of H = 1g

Mass of one atom of H = (1 / 6.022 × 1023) g

= 1.66 x 10-24 g

1 mole of silver atoms = 108 g

1 mole of silver contains 6.022 × 1023 atoms

6.022 x 1023 atoms of silver = 108 g

Mass of one atom of silver atom = 108 / 6.022 × 1023 g

= 1.793 × 10-22g

Ratio between masses of silver and hydrogen atoms

= 1.793 × 10−22 / 1.66 × 10−24) g

= 1.080 × 102
