Water and Calcium Chloride
« on: October 04, 2005, 06:39:39 AM »
The chemical formula of the drying agent, calcium chloride, is CaCl2. Suppose that one mole calcium chloride is required to absorb 1 mole of water, how many grams of calcium chloride are required to absorb 24.46 moles of water? Your answer should contain 2 decimal places.

24.46 mol H2O*(l mol CaCl2/1 mol H2O)*(110.98 g CaCl2/1 mol CaCl2) = 2714.57 g CaCl2

Is this right?

Thanks for any help.
