Water is added to 4.267 grams of UF6. The only products are 3.730 grams of a solid containing only uranium, oxygen and fluorine and 0.970 gram of gas. The gas is 95.0% flourine, and the remainder is hydrogen. From data determine the empirical formula of the gas.
What fraction of the fluorine of the original compound is in the solid and what fraction in the gas after the reaction?
What is the formula of the solid product?
Write a balance equation for the reaction between UF6 and H2O. Assume that the empirical formula of the gas is the true formula.
