Step 1: Balanced equation for the reaction

Iron (Fe) reacts with oxygen (O2) to form the product Fe2O3.

Mn(s) + O2(g) → Mn3O4(s)


We can balance this equation by adding 3 to Mn and 2 to O2.

3 Mn(s) + 3 O2(g) → Mn3O4(s)


Step 2: Heat released by the chemical reaction

We will consider these facts when solving this problem:

1387 kJ of heat is released when 1 mol of Mn3O4 is formed.


The amount of heat is:
