Nickel carbonyl has a formula: Ni(CO)4. Nickel carbonyl is produced by the reaction of solid nickel metal with carbon monoxide gas.
1. how do you write a balanced equation for this reaction?
2. How many liters of carbon monoxide gas must be provided to react with 5.00g of nickel metal at STP?
3. How many grams of nickel carbonyl would be formed by the reaction of #2?

Ni(s) + 4CO(g) ==> Ni(CO)4(l)
The other two parts are stoichiometry problems. Here is a link that gives secific instructions for solving stoichiometry problems.
