Solution: Bornite (Cu3FeS3) is a copper ore used in the production of copper. When heated, the following reaction occurs:2 Cu 3FeS 3 (s) + 7 O2 (g) → 6 Cu (s) + 2 FeO (s) + 6 SO 2 (g)If 2.50 metric tons of bornite is reacted with excess O 2 and the process has an 86.3% yield of copper, what mass of copper is produced?

Problem

Bornite (Cu3FeS3) is a copper ore used in the production of copper. When heated, the following reaction occurs:

2 Cu 3FeS 3 (s) + 7 O2 (g) → 6 Cu (s) + 2 FeO (s) + 6 SO 2 (g)

If 2.50 metric tons of bornite is reacted with excess O 2 and the process has an 86.3% yield of copper, what mass of copper is produced?
