Calculate how much acetylene (C2H2) can be produced from 358 g of H20 and an excess of CaC2 if the perfect yield for this reaction is 94.5%

CaC2+H2)-> C2H2+C2H2+CA(OH)2

  • Chemistry -

    This is not a limiting reagent problem. I call these simple stoichiometry problems.
    Balance the equation.
    Convert g H2O to mols.
    Convert mols H2O to mols C2H2.
    Convert mols C2H2 to grams. g = mols x molar mass.
