Mercury reacts with oxygen to produce mercury(II) oxide.
Hg(l) + O2(g) → HgO(s)
a. Balance the reaction equation. Include physical states.
2Hg(l) + O2(g) → 2HgO(s)
b. What is the theoretical yield (in grams) of HgO if 255 g of Hg are reacted with 255 g of O2?
Here is the way you do all of these stoichiometry problems.
