Answer:

What does the balanced equation say?

Explanation:

It says that #1# #"mole"# of dinitogen pentoxide reacts with 1 mole of water to produce #2# #"moles"# of nitric acid.

Now you start with a #"0.5 mole"# quantity of #N_2O_5#. I think it is pretty clear how much nitric acid you are going to get.
