🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Brown's class at HUMBOLDT.

Solution: The manufacture of aluminum includes the production of cryolite (Na 3AlF6) from the following reaction: 6 HF + 3 NaAlO2 → Na3AlF6 + 3 H2O + Al2O3 How much NaAlO2 (sodium aluminate) is required in kg to produce 2.80 kg of Na 3AlF6?

Problem
