Question #198164

How many moles of ammonium sulfate can be made from the reaction of 30.0 moles of ammonia and sulfuric acid?

NH_{3 }+ H_{2}SO_{4} **→** (NH_{4})_{2}SO_{4}

Expert's answer

**Solution:**

Balanced chemical equation:

2NH_{3 }+ H_{2}SO_{4} **→** (NH_{4})_{2}SO_{4}

According to the equation above: n[NH_{3}]/2 = n[(NH_{4})_{2}SO_{4}]

Therefore,

n[(NH_{4})_{2}SO_{4}] = n[NH_{3}] / 2 = 30.0 mol / 2 = **15.0 mol (NH**_{4}**)**_{2}**SO**_{4}

**Answer: 15.0 moles of ammonium sulfate can be made.**
