The following reaction represents the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide:

2H2O2 -> O2 (g) + 2H2O (l)

How many molecules of water are produced from the decomposition of 3.4g of hydrogen peroxide, H2O2?

1. figure the moles of H2O2 in 3.4g

You get the same number of moles of water.

No, the number of molecules is a very large number. You need to think on this. How can the answer be less than one molecule (as in .02 molecules)>

2. I'm not understanding. what do you mean figure the moles of H2O2 in 3.4 g of water? You get the same number of moles of water? I calculated:

nH2O2 = 3.4g/34.02g/mol= 0.0999412 mol

Water on the other hand has 18.02 mol

sorry but I'm not understanding. I think for this particular answer I need help from the beginning because I can't wrap my head around what I'm doing.
