If you want to produce 2.00 kg of ethylene glycol from the reaction of C2H4Cl2 and Na2CO3, what is the minimum amount of C2H4Cl2 that is needed? C2H4Cl2(l) + Na2CO3(s) + H2O(l)C2H6O2(l) + 2NaCl(aq) + CO2(g)
Convert 2 kg to grams = 2000 g and to mols. mols = grams/molar mass.
Using the coefficients in the balanced equation, convert mols ethylene glycol to mols C2H4Cl2.
Convert mols C2H4Cl2 to grams. g = mols x molar mass.
