Problem: For the reactionTi(s) + 2F2 → TiF4compute the theoretical yield of the product (in grams) for each of the following initial amounts of reactants.2.5 g Ti, 1.7 g F2

FREE Expert Solution

Ti(s) + 2 F2 → TiF4

Calculate the amount of TiF4 produced from each reactant and determine the limiting reactant:

mass Ti (molar mass) → moles Ti (mole-to-mole comparison) → moles TiF4 (molar mass) → mass TiF4

molar mass Ti = 47.867 g/mol
molar mass TiF4 = 123.867 g/mol

mass TiF4=2.5 g Ti×1 mol Ti47.867 g Ti×1 mol TiF41 mol Ti×123.867 g TiF41 mol TiF4

mass TiF4 = 6.47 g


mass F2 (molar mass) → moles F2 (mole-to-mole comparison) → moles TiF4 (molar mass) → mass TiF4
