# Question #b7af7

##### 1 Answer

For this question we have to start with balanced chemical equation.

U + 3

As per the above equation (a) , one mole of Uranium U, produces one mole of U

1 mole of reactant Uranium = 1 mole of U

In terms of mass one mole of Uranium has mass 238.02 g/mol.

and one mole of U

so let us set up the ratio;

(1 mole U / 1 mole U

100 g of U will produce X g of U

100 g of U / X g of U

equating two equation (b) and (c)

238.02 / 717.4 = 100 g / X

238.02 . X = 717.4 x 100

238.02 . X = 71740

X = 71740/ 238.02 = 301.40 g

since the percent yield is 83 % , so the reaction produced 83 % of the expected yield. The actual amount of U

0.83 x 301.40 = 250.16 g.
