What mass of iron is needed to react with 16.0 grams of sulfur? 8 Fe + S8 ---> 8 FeS
How many grams of Fe are produced if 16.0 grams of sulfur?
We begin with a balanced chemical equation that is provided in the question.
Next we determine what we have and what we want.
We have 16.0 grams of sulfur and we want grams of iron.
We set up a roadmap to solve the problem
We need the molar mass (
We need the mole ratio between
Now we set up conversion factors following the roadmap from above.
Unit we want in the numerator, unit to cancel in the denominator.
Multiply the numerators, and divide the denominators.
The outcome is
will be consumed with 16.0 grams
I hope this was helpful.
