1.60: Assume a 70-kg person, and the human body is mostly water.

Use Appendix D to find the mass of one H2O molecule: 18.015 u  1.661  10–27 kg/u = 2.992  10–26 kg/molecule. (70 kg/2.992  10–26 kg/molecule) = 2.34  1027 molecules. (Assuming carbon to be the most common atom gives 3  1027 molecules.
