I don't believe this problem is workable as is. Here is why. If you use NTP, then mols in 28L is 28/24.05 = 1.164 Suppose ALL 1.164 mols are present as C2H6, then g O2 required is 1.164 x (7 mols O2/2 mols C2H6) x (32 g O2/1 mol O2) = about 130 grams O2 which comes close ...

2Ca + O2 ==> 2CaO mols Ca = grams/atomic mass = ? Use the coefficients in the balanced equation to convert mols Ca to mols CaO. In this case mols Ca = mols CaO Then convert mols CaO to grams. g = mols CaO x molar mass CaO.

Remember Cu is not soluble in HCl which means you must go around the barn to get there. Dissolve Cu metal in HNO3 and evaporate to dryness. Add water to form a solution, add Na2CO3 to ppt CuCO3. Filter, dissolve the CuCO3 in HCl and evaporate to dryness.

Dissolve the mixture in H2O; PbCO3 will not be soluble, filter and collect the PbCO3 as the solid. Use the filtrate, evaporate the water leaving solid Na2CO3.

I think B is true. C is true. But A is not true; for example, NH3 is analogous to H2O in liquid NH3. Just as H2O + H2O ==> H3O^+ + OH^- in aqueous solution, then NH3 + NH3 ==> NH4^+ + NH2^- in liquid NH3. So I don't know about the answer. If it were D that is true ...

An increase in P shifts the equilibrium to the side with fewer mols of gas; therefore, an increase in P shifts it to the left. That means you want to decrease the pressure to shift the reaction to the right.

Do you want w/w or w/v %? I will assume w/v. 80% NaOH means 80g NaOH/100 mL solution. 20% KOH means 20 g KOH/100 mL solution. You don't want 100 but only 10 so 80 g x 10/100 = 8 g NaOH 20 g x 10/100 = 2 g KOH Weigh out 8 g NaOH and 2 g KOH, place in a 10 mL volumetric ...

No. The word "technically" bothers me. I think non-technically it may be similar but technically it isn't close. Precipitation is a reaction producing a solid; crystallization is not a reaction but a material coming out of solution where it has been dissolved.

S won't do it since it isn't soluble in water. (C and Si are not soluble either). The answer is sodium. 2Na + 2H2O ==> H2 + 2NaOH and NaOH is a strong base which will turn phenolphthalein pink.

HBr + NaOH ==> NaBr + H2O Since HBr is a strong acid and NaOH is a strong base, the material at the end is just a salt in water. The pH of the water will be 7 (at least that's the simple answer and it neglects ionic strength and the Debye-Hueckel theory).
