1. Aluminum chloride, AlCl3, is an inexpensive reagent used in many industrial processes. It is made by treating scrap aluminum with chlorine according to the following equation. Please balance the equation.
__2_ Al (s) + 3___ Cl2(g) _2___ AlCl3(s)
If you start with 3.11 g of Al and 5.32 g of Cl2, which reagent is limiting? How many grams of AlCl3 can be produced? During an experiment you obtained 5.57 g of AlCl3, what was your percent yield?
Limiting reactant =Cl2
Mass of AlCl3 produced =6.94g
Percent Yield =86.7%
