how many grams of Fe2O3 are formed when 16.7g of Fe reacts completely with oxygen.

4Fe +3O2 --> 2Fe2O3

how do i do this problem..thanks:)

  • chemistry -

    (a) Look up the molar mass of Fe (= the atomic mass of Fe labeled "gFe/mol")
    (b) Divide16.7gFe by (a) to get moles of Fe
    (c) Multiply (b) by 2molFe2O3/4molFe (or 2/4) to get moles of Fe2O3 produced.
    (d) multiply (c) by the formula mass of Fe2O3*

    *To find the formula mass of Fe2O3, look up each atomic mass, multiply each by the subscript, and add add them all up.
