Chemistry - Stoichiometry
From the equation, find the stoichiometric ratio of HCl and MnCl2 which equals 2. This means that 1 mol of MnCl2 will generate 2 mol of HCl. Using the fact that 1 mol of HCl occupies 22.4 L at STP, you will find how many mol of MnCl2 will be required to make 0.054 L of HCl.

maths - cosine rule
Use the cosine rule: c²=a²+b²-2ab cos(C) with a=7, b=15, and included angle C would vary from 0 to 180 degrees. Note that these limits themselves are not valid values, i.e. max>c>min. They represent the sum and difference of the two sides.

Assuming zinc is in excess. 18 mL of 6.00 M H2SO4 equals 0.108 mol From Zn+H2SO4 -> ZnSO4 + H2 we deduce that 1 mol of H2SO4 produces 1 mol of ZnSO4. So mass of ZnSO4 produced is 0.108 mol, multiplied by the molecular mass of ZnSO4.
