Answer to Question #40495 in Inorganic Chemistry for maegan
Cryolite, Na3AlF6(s), an ore used in the production of aluminum, can be synthesized using aluminum oxide.
AL2O3(s) + NaOH(l) + HF(g) ---> Na3 AlF6 + H2O(g)
1)Balance the equation.
2)If 15.2 kilograms of Al2O3(s), 57.4 kilograms of NaOH(l), and 57.4 kilograms of HF(g) react completely, how many kilograms of cryolite will be produced?
3)Which reactants will be in excess?
4)What is the total mass of the excess reactants left over after the reaction is complete?
