# Answer to Question #7813 in Inorganic Chemistry for Derick Adams

Question #7813

If, under certain conditions, 1.4 g of X reacts with 2.1 g of Z to produce 3.5 g of X2Z3, then, under different conditions, if 0.80 g of X reacts with 1.6 g of Z to produce 2.4 g of a new compound, what is the formula for this new compound?

Expert's answer

2X+3Z=X2Z3

when we write the coefficients at X and Z we can see that mass of

X is proportional (as a coefficients) to mZ

2:3 proportional 1.4 : 2.1 (

2*0.7 : 3*0.7),is logical to assume that this is true in the next

case

0,8;1,6=1:2 ,so

X+2Z=XZ2
