    waiting to use percentage yield now like the title suggests...!



    The coefficient never tells you how many moles are actually there, but rather the RATIO in which it reacts with other reactants.

    2x + 5y ---> 3z + 4w

    This means that every 2 moles of x react with 5 moles of y producing 3 moles of z and 4 moles of w

    It doesn't tell you how many moles of each substance you actually have...just the RATIO in which they react...very important you don't get confused...

    Ohh that is why u r soo good at chemistry just one more question
    You said we can add the masses together but can we workout the moles for each compound and add them together??

    I didn't realise the equation wasn't balanced not that good haha!

    You shouldn't add the masses together...you should work out the moles of each reactant individually and see which is in excess

    I didn't realize that too.
    I get that we can work out the moles of reactants individually but what do u mean by which is in excess??

    its just outcome yield divided by actual yield and time by 100. It's the easiest calculation i think in c2. gl.

    If there are 2 moles of X and 3 moles of Y and they react in a 1:1 ratio then Y is in excess...i.e. when all of X is used up there is still some Y left over.

    Thanks a lot do u mind if I look out for u on tsr if I need help in chemistry in the future??

    mol=Mass in grams/Mr

    Mr = Relative molecular mass (sum of all relative atomic masses) i.e. Mr of CuCl2 = 63.5 + (2x35.5) =134.5

    Quite a fundamental formula that you should certainly know!
    Thank you!!!

    Sorry but the method is right I just did it again with the balanced equation and the answer is
    Use this formula= mass= moles*relative formula mass
    So first work out the relative formula for each of them. Lets start with CuCl2
    Cu= 63.5
    Cl= 35.5*2= 71
    Than it is 2NaNO3
    Na= 23*2=46
    Nitrogen= 14
    Oxygen =16*3 = 48
    Add the relative formula mass of CuCl2+NaNO3 together= 242.5
    And you have the total mass of 15+20=35 grams
    Use this to work out moles which is mass/ relative formula mass
    Moles= 35/242.5= 0.1443298962
    Now work out the relative mass for 2NaCl
    Na= 23*2= 46
    Cl= 35.5*2= 71
    Add them together= 117
    For this you have to find mass which is moles* relative mass
    0.1443298962*117= 13.37659786
    So 13.37659786 Nacl can be formed
    Thank you very much!!! Something that I actually understand.

    U r welcome but I don't know if my answer is right because according to Dylaan it is wrong

    That working out is incorrect, look at mine instead.
