grade 12 chem - check my answer again please

posted by .

Hi, please check my work:
In an experiment, 23.4 g of FES are added to excess oxygen and 16.5 g of FE2O3 are produced. The balanced equation is:
4FeS + 7O2 --> 2Fe2O3 + 4SO2
Calculate the % yield.

My Answer:
nFeS=23.4g/87.92 g/mol
=0.266 mol

4mol FeS / 0.266 mol = 7mol O2/ x02
xO2=0.466 mol

mFe2O3 = nXM
= 0.466 mol x 159.7 g/mol
= 74.4 g

% yield = actual yield / theoretical yield X 100%
=16.5 g/74.4 g x 100%
=22.2%

That equation does not look balanced to me. Check the oxygen on both sides.

-this was the balanced equation out of the textbook...i can't believe the textbook's wrong (again)...

  • grade 12 chem - check my answer again please -

    you should get half the moles you started with.

    expected yield=.133 moles or .133*molmassFe2O3

    percentyield=molesproduct/expectedmoles

    = (16.5g/159.7)/(.133)
    = about 77 percent

    check that thinking. In your second step you solve for xO2. Why?
