How would you calculate the number of grams of sodium oxide, Na2O, that will be produced when 5.00 moles react with oxygen given the reaction: 4Na + O2--> 2 Na2O?
By the stoichiometry of this reaction if 5 mol natrium react, then 2.5 mol
The molecular mass of natrium oxide is
So what have I done here? First, I had a balanced chemical equation (this is the important step; is it balanced?). Then I used the stoichiometry to get the molar quantity of product, and converted this molar quantity to mass. If this is not clear, I am willing to have another go.
