How many grams of HgBr2 can be produced if 10.0 grams of Hg reacts with 10 grams Br2

  • Chemistry -

    You need to first find the limiting reagent/element in the formula. Solve for moles for each.

    10.0g of Hg*(1 mole of Hg/200.6g of Hg)= moles of Hg

    10.0g of Br2*(1 mole of Br2/159.8g of Br)= moles of Br

    Looking at it Br2 will be your limiting element/reagent

    moles of Br2/360.41 g of HgBr2/mol= g of HgBr2

  • Chemistry -

    Hg was the limiting reagent, not Br2.

    moles of Hg/360.41 g of HgBr2/mol= g of HgBr2
