  1. assuming STP for the O2, you have 5.6/22.4 = 0.25 moles O2

    5.6g = 5.6/55.85 = 0.10 moles Fe

    If your reaction is

    4Fe + 3O2 = 2Fe2O3

    then the reaction consumes elements in the ratio
    (moles O2)/(moles Fe) = 3/4

    Your available reagents are in the ratio of O2/Fe = 0.25/0.10 = 5/2

    So, there is excess O2, and you will wind up with 0.05 moles of Fe2O3, since it takes 2 Fe to produce 1 Fe2O3.
