# Lithium and nitrogen react to produce lithium nitride: #6Li(s) + N_2(g) -> 2Li_3N(s)#. How many moles of lithium nitride are produced when 0.710 mol of lithium react in this fashion?

We will obtain 0.237 mol of

#### Explanation:

Since the given information is in moles, we need only look at the ratio between the chemicals:

Six moles of Li will produce 2 moles of lithium nitride. So, the ratio is 6:2 or 3:1.

Therefore, we can set up a proportion:

This tells us that in the general case, we need three times as much Li as the amount of
