The mole allows us to relate real-word measurements to atomic scale phenomena.

In this case you only have one variable to solve for ($x$) and you have one piece of information (Zn being 21.5% by mass) so you have enough information to solve the question. The molecular mass of t …

For example, the volume of one mole of water is … approximately $18~\mathrm{cm^3}$. But the molar volume of water should be $18~\mathrm{cm^3~mol^{-1}}$. Saying that the molar volume is the "volume of one mole of substance" is incorrect, just like …
