1. 4 moles Al to 3 moles O2

molar masses ... Al - 27 g ... O2 - 32 g

moles Al ... 2.5 / 27 ... 0.093 ... dividing by 4 = .023
moles O2 ... 2.5 / 32 ... 0.078 ... dividing by 3 = .026

Al is the limiting reactant ... 0.069 moles of O2 are consumed ... 3 * .023
... 32 g * .069 = ? ... added to 2.5 g of Al
