Problem: I2 is produced by the reaction of 0.4235 mol of CuCl2 according to the following equation: 2CuCl2 + 4KI ⟶ 2CuI + 4KCl + I 2.(b) What mass of  I2 is produced?

FREE Expert Solution

We're being asked to calculate the mass of  I2 is produced.

Given reaction: 2 CuCl2 + 4 KI ⟶ 2 CuI + 4 KCl + I2


We will calculate the mass of I2 using the following steps:

moles CuCl2 (mole-to-mole comparison) → moles I2 (molar mass moles I2) → mass I2
