    1. Write a balanced equation :
    2H^2O^2---O^2+ 2H^2O
    2. Find the molar mass (g/mol) of each:
    34.02 32.00 18.02
    3. Divide grams water by the molar mass of water:
    .77g (1mol/18.02g) ~ .0427 mols
    4. Use the mole ratios to find the number of hydrogen peroxide moles:
    2H^2O^2---O^2+ 2H^2O; they are the same.
    5. Multiply moles by molar mass of hydrogen peroxide.
    .0427 mol (34.02g/1mol)
    6. Answer
    1.454g H^2O^2
