Balanced equation: 2Au + 2BrF3 + 2KF → Br2 + 2KAuF4
Determine the limiting reactant → reactant that forms the less amount of
Comparing molar mass:
The mass of gold salt formed by 25.83 g Au is:
Treatment of gold metal with BrF3 and KF produces Br2 and KAuF4, a salt of gold. If a 77.5 g mixture of equal masses is used, find the actual mass of the gold salt that forms.
