Dear Chanchal,

since  chlorophyll contains 2.68% Mg therefore weight of Mg in 2g chlorophyll = 2×2.68/100 = .0536 g

now Mole of Mg = weight/atomic weight

= .0536/24

since 1 mole contains  6.023×10^23 particles

therefore number of atoms present in .0536/24 mole will be = (.0536/24) × 6.023×10^23

=1.34 × 10^23 atoms of Mg

Dear Student,

since chlorophyll contains 2.68% Mg
therefore weight of Mg in 2g chlorophyll = 2×2.68/100
= .0536 g

now Mole of Mg = weight/atomic weight
= .0536/24
since 1 mole contains 6.023×10^23 particles
therefore number of atoms present in .0536/24 mole will be
= (.0536/24) × 6.023×10^23
=1.34 × 10^23 atoms of Mg

Thanks and Regards
