Problem: For each of the reactions, calculate the mass (in grams) of the product formed when 3.51 g of the underlined reactant completely reacts. Assume that there is more than enough of the other reactant.2 Mg(s) + CO2(g) → 2 MgO(s)

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to calculate the mass (in grams) of the product formed when 3.51 g of Mg(s) completely reacts. 



2 Mg(s) + CO2(g) → 2 MgO(s)


Molar mass Mg = 24.31 g/mol

Molar mass MgO = 40.31 g/mol
