Came across this question on an exam today, completely blanked. Only question I wasn't confident in.
"I have a 33g sample of Potassium Sulfide, The atomic masses are K = 39, S = 32."
What is the molecular formula of Potassium Sulfide?
How many moles of Potassium are found when the 33g sample is dissolved in a .500 L solution?
This test was to be done without a calculator, and without a periodic table. I obviously knew that potassium sulfide is K2S, but is there something more to this question? For the second one, since there is no calculator allowed, I was just asked to set up the analysis, so i converted 33g of K2S to mol of K2S, and then used the mole ratio of 2 mol K to 1 mol of K2S. Can someone either confirm this or tell me where I went wrong?
