The mass of potassium chlorate = 34.8 g
According to the Ideal Gas equation,
According to the balanced equation
3 mol of
0.4262 mol of
The reaction requires 34.8 g of
There are four steps involved in this problem:
- Write the balanced equation for the reaction.
- Use the Ideal Gas Law to calculate the moles of
- Use the molar ratio of
#"KClO"_3:"O"_2#from the balanced equation to calculate the moles of #"KClO"_3#.
- Use the molar mass of
#"KClO"_3#to calculate the mass of #"KClO"_3#.
Let's get started.
Step 1. Write the balanced chemical equation.
Step 2. Calculate the moles of
The Ideal Gas Law is
#color(blue)(bar(ul(|color(white)(a/a)PV = nRTcolor(white)(a/a)|)))" "#
We can rearrange the Ideal Gas Law to get:
3. Calculate the moles of
4. Calculate the mass of
