For this problem, will someone please check my answer?
How many grams of oxygen are produced in the decomposition of 5.00g of potassium chlorate?
[the equation may not be balanced]
My answer is 1.96 g of O2.
The balanced equation is
2KClO3 ==> 2KCl + 3O2
I, too, obtained 1.96g O2. You must have balanced the equation before solving, else our answers would not have agreed.
Yes, I did. Thank you!
