Question

Bornite (Cu3FeS3) is a copper ore used in the production of copper. When heated, the following reaction occurs:

2Cu3FeS3(s) + 7O2(g) → 6Cu(s) + 2FeO(s) + 6SO2(g)

If 2.50 metric tons of bornite is reacted with excess O 2 and the process has an 86.3% yield of copper, what mass of copper is produced?
