The balanced reaction is:
Fe2O3(s) + 3 CO(g) → 2 Fe(s) + 3 CO2(g)
You may want to reference (Pages 103 - 105) Section 3.6 while completing this problem.
An iron ore sample contains Fe2O3 together with other substances. Reaction of the ore with CO produces iron metal: Fe2O3(s) + CO(g) → Fe(s) + CO2(g). Calculate the number of grams of Fe formed when 0.360 kg of Fe2O3 reacts.
