(a) Look up the molar mass of Fe (= the atomic mass of Fe labeled "gFe/mol")

(b) Divide16.7gFe by (a) to get moles of Fe

(c) Multiply (b) by 2molFe2O3/4molFe (or 2/4) to get moles of Fe2O3 produced.

(d) multiply (c) by the formula mass of Fe2O3*

*To find the formula mass of Fe2O3, look up each atomic mass, multiply each by the subscript, and add add them all up.
