Question:

448g of iron(III) oxide, Fe2O3, reacts with an excess of carbon monoxide, CO in the following reaction.

Fe2O3(s)+3CO(g){eq}\rightarrow {/eq}2Fe(s)+3CO2(g) a) Calculate the mass of iron solid, Fe, produced and use the following molar masses in your calculation: Fe2O3=159.7g mol-1; Fe=55.85g mol-1.

Stoichiometry:

Stoichiometry is the quantitative relationship between chemicals in a chemical reaction. It utilizes the molar ratio between chemicals as established in a balanced chemical equation and gives us the power to predict the amount of reactant needed to produce a desired quantity of product or to predict the amount of product produced from a known quantity of reactants.
