A 40.3 g of iron ore is treated as follows. The iron in the sample is all converted by a series of chemical reactions to Fe2O3. The mass of Fe2O3 is measured to be 10.5 grams. What was the percent iron in the sample of ore?

    Isn't this done the same as the problems before? Try it yourself first.

    Given:
    m{sample} = 40.3g
    m{Fe2O3} = 10.5g
    w{Fe2O3} = 159.6887 ± 0.0002 g/mol
    w{Fe} = 55.8452 ± 0.0001 g/mol
    And the stoichiometry:
    m{Fe}/w{Fe} = 3 m{Fe2O3}/w{Fe2O3}

    The percentage of iron in the sample is:
    m{Fe}/m{sample} = ...

  • AP Chemistry -

    Typo correction:
    m{Fe}/w{Fe} = 2 m{Fe2O3}/w{Fe2O3}

  • AP Chemistry -

    Find the number of moles of Fe2O3 in 10.5g of Fe2O3:

    10.5g*(1 mole/159.6882 g)=moles of Fe2O3

    Convert moles of Fe2O3 into moles of Fe:

    Moles of Fe2O3*(2 moles of Fe/1 mole of Fe2O3)=moles of Fe

    How many g of Fe are in the moles of Fe calculated above?

    Moles of Fe*(55.845g/1mole)=mass of Fe

    (mass of Fe/40.3g of Fe ore)*100=% of Fe in original sample
