Stoichiometry
« on: November 20, 2019, 07:50:51 PM »
Could anybody help with this question?

Bismuth oxide reacts with carbon to form bismuth metal

Bi2O3(s) + 3C(s)  :rarrow: 2 Bi(s) + 3CO(g)

When 50.7g Bi2O3 reacts with excess C,
a) How many moles of Bi2O3 react?
b)How many moles of Bi form?

You must determine how many moles of Bi2O3 are in 50.7g, using the molar masses of Bi and O (or O2, but don't confuse them). Then, this balanced equation lets you count moles and answer b).

It doesn't matter to the answers here, but I expect Bi to be formed liquid or gaseous, not solid. More heat produced than for iron, which is produced liquid, and bismuth melts more easily.
