In a chemical reaction, exactly 2 mol of substance A react to produce exactly 3 mol of substance B

2A ---> 3B

How many molecules of substance B are produced when 27.9 g of substance A reacts? the molar mass of substance A is 24.7 g/mol

STEP 1: convert the mass of A to moles

this is what i did :

2mol x 27.9g/24.7g = 2.259109 mol
is it right?

STEP 2 :convert the number of moles of A to the number of moles of B

STEP 3: convert the number of moles of B to molecules of B

  • Chemistry -

    Step 1:
    You shouldn't multiply by the 2 yet. You will use that in the next step of the problem.

    Step 2: Here you will take the moles you got and use the given moles of substance.
    1.1296 molA * (3 molB/2 molA)
    That will give you the correct number of moles B.

    Step 3: Here you use Avogadro's # to find molecules of B.

    NOTE: I am not a tutor but I have done problems like this before.
