Hydrogen peroxide, H2O2, is unstable under certain conditions and decomposes as follows:
2 H2O2 → 2 H2O + O2
? g 34.00 g 15.98 g
What mass of hydrogen peroxide, to the nearest hundredth of a gram, is decomposed in this reaction?

2. Mrs. Sue died due to sickness. I came here looking for the answer too. The best answer I have is 49.98. I added 15.98g and 34g. I'm not sure if it's right but it's the best I got.

3. That question is flawed or there is a typo somewhere. 49.98 SHOULD BE the correct answer BUT if you start with 49.98 g H2O2 and decompose all of it you do NOT get 34.00 g H2O and 15.98 g O2. Starting with 49.98 g H2O2 will give you 26.46 g H2O and 23.52 g O2.
