16.2g of magnesium reacts exactly with 25.3g of fluorine to produce magnesium fluoride, the only product.
How many grams of magnesium fluoride could be produced from the reaction of 10.5g of magnesium with excess fluorine.


This is simple if you use ratios...

You know that 16.2 g Mg produced (16.2+25.3)g of MgF2.

16.2/(16.2+25.3)=10/x

solve for x.
