The uranium used for nuclear fuel exists in nature in several minerals. Calculate how many moles of uranium are in 6.0 moles of the following:

Carnotite; K2(UO2)2(VO4)2*3H2O


Uranophane; CaU2Si2O11*7H2O


Autunite; Ca (UO2)2(PO4)2*10H2O

  1. Carnotite: K2(UO2)2(VO4)2*3H2O
    6 mols K2(UO2)2(VO4)2*3H2O x (2 mols U/1 mol K2(UO2)2(VO4)2*3H2O = 6x(2/1) = ?
    The others are done the same way.
