Sodium (Na) reacts with chlorine gas (Cl2) to form sodium chloride (NaCl) as shown in the equation


If 4 moles of sodium react, how many moles of chlorine gas will react?

I have no idea what to do.......... I need some assistance thanks

  • Physical Science -

    the equation says that 2 moles of Na react with 1 mole of Cl2

    4/2 = 2, so just multiply all the quantities by 2:

    4 moles Na react with 2 moles Cl2.

  • Physical Science -

    Sodium burns vigorously with Golden yellow flame
