Answer to Question #22101 in Inorganic Chemistry for khadijah
Aluminum oxide is decomposed using electricity to produce aluminum metal. How many grams of aluminum metal can be produced from 100.0 g of Al2O3?
Aluminum oxide is decomposed using electricity toproduce aluminum metal by next reaction:
2Al2O3 ---> 4Al + 3O2
Now it is possible to calculate mass of aluminum metal:
100g Al2O3 * (1 mole Al2O3/ 102g Al2O3) * (4 mol Al/ 2 mol Al2O3) * (27g Al/ 1mol Al) = 52.9412 g Al
