I got 0,666 mol
- write the equation of the reaction and balnce it
#Fe#(s) + 3 #O_2#(g) #->#2 #Fe_2O_3#(s)
If you have problems with balancing this chemical equation, here is the whole process explained:
- put iron and oxygen [the reactants] in ratio to extract the number of moles for oxygen
On the picture below you can see how to work it out.
