Answer:D. 2.61 x 10^22

Explanation:

Given that mass of Lead(Pb) = 8.97g

Molar mass of lead =207.2g/mol

No of moles = Mass / molar mass

=8.97g/207.2g/mol

= 0.04329moles

Converting to atoms using Avogadro's number

we know that

1 mole = 6.022 x 1023 atom

Therefore 0.04329 moles of Pb = 0.04329moles x  6.022 x 10^23 atoms

=2.6069 x 10^22

=2.61 x10^22atoms
