Problem

When 0.2250 g of magnesium is heated with 0.5331 g of nitrogen in a closed container, the magnesium is completely converted to 0.3114 g of magnesium nitride. What mass of unreacted nitrogen must remain?


Solution

First is to write the balanced equation where Mg (s) and nitrogen gas, N2 (g) produces magnesium nitride Mg3N2 (magnesium ion is Mg2+ and nitride ion is N3-). Unbalanced reaction will appear as:
