Answer on Electric Circuits Question for Sara
If we let: n = moles of pure substance,
m = mass of substance in grams,
M = molar mass of the pure substance in g mol-1
we can write the equation: n=m/M
The molar mass of atoms of an element is given by the atomic weight of the element. The molar mass of a compound is given by the sum of the standard atomic weights of the atoms.
n(ZnS) = 16.7g /( 97 g/mol)n(ZnS) =0.172 mol
n(O2) = 6.7g/(32g/mol)=0.2 mol
n(ZnS)=n(ZnO), because from the balanced chemical equation the mole ratio ZnS:ZnO is 2:2
n (ZnO) = 0.172 mol
General equation can be rearranged to give the following:
m (ZnO) = 0.172 mol * 72 g/mol = 12.384 g
mass of zinc oxide=12,384 g
