Question:

Balance the reaction, determine the answer to the question.

{eq}\displaystyle \rm k + Cl_2 \to KCl {/eq}

How many grams {eq}\displaystyle \rm K {/eq} are needed to react with {eq}\displaystyle \rm 15 \ grams {/eq} of {eq}\displaystyle \rm Cl_2 {/eq}?

Amount of Substance

If we want to find the amount of one reactant needed to react with the other reactant, then we have to balance the chemical reaction firstly so that we can find the molar ratio in which the reactants react with each other, and according to the balance equation, we will find the mass of the reactants react with each other.
