Cryolite, Na3AlF6(s), an ore used in the production of aluminum, can be synthesized using aluminum oxide.
Balance the equation:
Al2O3(s) + NaOH(l) + HF(g) -> Na3AlF6 + H2O(g)
If 14.0 kilograms of Al2O3(s), 57.4 kilograms of NaOh(l), and 57.4 kilograms of HF(g) react completely, how many kilograms of cryolite will be produced?
Which reactants will be in excess?
What is the total mass of the excess reactants left over after the reaction is complete?
A long problem. What do you not understand about EACH part. Perhaps we can help you through it.
