When 5.00 grams of copper racts with excess silver nitrate, silver metls and sopper nitrate are produced. What is the theoretical yeild of silver in this reaction? please give step by step help

  • chemistry -

    Cu + 2AgNO3 ==> 2Ag + Cu(NO3)2
    mols Cu = grams/atomic mass Cu
    Convert mols Cu to mols Ag using the coefficients in the balanced equation.
    g Ag = mols Ag x atomic mass Ag. This is the theoretical yield.
