When magnesium is heated in air, it reacts with oxygen to form magnesium oxide.
2Mg + O2 --> 2MgO
If the mass of the magnesium increases by 0.335 g, how many grams of magnesium reacted?
A. 0.882
B. 0.441
C. 0.509
D. 1.02
E. Not enough Info

  1. The added mass of 0.335 g must be due to the added oxygen. I would convert 0.335 g O2 to moles, use the coefficients in the balanced equation to convert to moles Mg and multiply by moles mass to convert to grams Mg. Post your work if you get stuck.
