Problem: If 3.00 g of titanium metal is reacted with 6.00 g of chlorine gas, Cl2, to form 7.7 g of titanium (IV) chloride in a combination reaction, what is the percent yield of the product?

FREE Expert Solution

Reactants:

titanium metal → Ti
chlorine gas → Cl2


Products:

titanium (IV) chloride  → TiCl4


Balanced reaction:   Ti + 2 Cl2 → TiCl4


Calculate theoretical yield:

TiCl4 from Ti:

molar mass TiCl4 = 189.667 g/mol
molar mass Ti = 47.867 g/mol

mass TiCl4=3.00 g Ti×1 mol Ti47.867 g Ti×1 mol TiCl41 mol Ti×189.667 g TiCl41 mol TiCl4
