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)
1.454g H^2O^2
