    If someone could show me, explain, how to do this equation and what type of equation it is, I would be grateful.

    2NH3 + H2SO4 ----------------> (NH4)2SO4

    Calculate the maximum mass of ammonium sulphate that can be obtained from 100g of ammonia.

    2NH3 + H2SO4 ----------------> (NH4)2SO4

    Calculate the maximum mass of ammonium sulphate that can be obtained from 100g of ammonia.
    that is a neutralisation reaction between acid and base:

    2NH_3 + H_2SO_4 \rightarrow (NH_4)_2SO_4

    1. How many moles of ammonia is 100g?

    2. note that two moles of ammonia produce one mole of ammonium sulphate

    3. so divide your answer to 1. by 2 and you have the number of moles of ammonium sulphate

    4. convert the answer to 3. into grams
