Atomic mass of sodium = 23u (data)

It means gram atomic mass of sodium = 23 gm

Now atoms present in 23 gm sodium = 6.022 × 1023

$\frac{6.022 \times 10^{23}}{23}\times 100$

It means Number of atoms in 100 gm sodium = 1.6753 × 1024

∴ 100 gm sodium has more number of atoms rather than 100 gms of iron.
