Solution: The reaction between potassium chlorate and red phosphorus takes place when you strike a match on a matchbox. If you were to react 52.9 g of potassium chlorate (KClO3) with excess red phosphorus, what mass of tetraphosphorus decaoxide (P4O10) could be produced?KClO3 (s) + P4 (s) → P4O10 (s) + KCl (s) (unbalanced)
