The rock in a lead ore deposit contains 84% PbS by mass. How many kilograms of the rock must be processed to obtain 1.0 kg of Pb?

  • Chemistry - ,

    1 kg Pb = ? mols Pb. mols = grams/molar mass
    1 mol PbS = 1 mol Pb
    kg PbS required = mols PbS x molar mass PbS.

    mass PbS/0.84 = mass lead ore deposit that must be processed.
    Check my thinking. Check my work.
