Solution: DDT, an insecticide harmful to fish, birds, and humans, is produced by the following reaction:2 C6H5Cl + C2HOCl3 → C14H9Cl5 + H2O  chlorobenzene          chloral                        DDTIn a government lab, 1142 g of chlorobenzene is reacted with 485 g of chloral. What mass of DDT is formed, assuming 100% yield?
