    2KClO3 ==> 2KCl + 3O2

    a. How many moles of KClO3 reacted?
    mols KClO3 = grams/molar mass.

    b. How many moles of KCl are formed?
    mols KCl = mols KClO3 x (2 mol KCl/2 mol KClO3) = mols KClO3 x 2/2 = ?

    c. How many grams of KCl are formed?
    grams KCl = mols KCl x molar mass KCl

    d. how many moles of O2 are formed?
    mols O2 = mols KClO3 x (3 mols O2/2 mols KClO3) = mols KClO3 x 3/2 = ?

    e. How many grams of O2 are formed?
    gO2 = mols O2 x molar mass O2.
