Problem: For each of the reactions, calculate the mass (in grams) of the product formed when 15.51 g of the underlined reactant completely reacts. Assume that there is more than enough of the other reactant.You may want to reference (Pages 141 - 145) Section 4.2 while completing this problem.2K(s) + Br2 (l) → 2KBr(s)

FREE Expert Solution

Balanced equation: 2K(s) + Br2 (l) → 2KBr(s)

  • 1 mole Br2 forms 2 moles KBr
    • Molar Mass of Br2 = 159.81 g/mol
    • Molar Mass of KBr = 119 g/mol
