    Your equation is wrong.
    It should be:

    CaCO3 -> CaO+CO2

    Do you know how to work out moles?

    I knew there was something wrong about it... :/
    and Kind Of.... In this case would it be 35/100.1?

    Yeah that's fine.
    So that's your moles for calcium carbonate.

    Now it's a one to one ratio with carbon dioxide, so now you have the moles of CO2, how would you find its mass?

    Multiply it by its Mr? (60)?

    I assume you mean CaCO3 -> CO2+CaO which is already balanced

    The relative molecular mass of CaCO3 is 40+12+16+16+16=100
    The relative molecular mass of CO2 is 12+16+16=42

    So 1g of CaCO3 -> 0.42g of CO2. Times both sides by 100 (because you're finding it out for 100g) and you get 100g of CaCO3 -> 42g of CO2

    Your Mr is wrong it's 44 (12+16+16), but other than that you got it

    Ohhh! Thanks for that, the ratio thing confuses me a lot. Chemistry GCSE was Ok for me but A Level is really separating the men from the boys

    No problem.

    Just how and why they are proportioned and what part of the equation is "ratio'd" like i have one question now

    It's not hard finding the ratio. You just have to look at the number in front of the reactants/products.

    Ok so do they give you an equation for this?

    Yep
    2 C7 H5 (NO2)3 -> 12CO+5 H2+ 3 N2 + 2 C
    What ive done is get the Mr of the first part which i got as 227, then divided that by 1000, and have 0.227
    no clue what to do next
    is it a 1:6 Ratio

    Are you sure your Mr is right?

    Because I'm getting a different answer.

    And you would times by 1000 as when you convert kg to g you multiply by 1000.

    Formula
    CaCO3 -> CO2+CA
    CaCO3 → CO2 + CaO

    n = m/M n = moles, m = mass, M = molar mass/relative molecular mass (technically, the values of the periodic table added up.)
    n = 35g / 40.1 + 12 + 3(16)
    n = 0.350

    Ratio of CaCO3 to CO2
    1 : 1
    (If it was 1 to 2, 1:2, you double, for example, if it was 2 to 1, 2:1, you divide, for example.)

    m = nM (or n x M, that's just how I write things.)
    m = 0.350 x (12 + 2(16))
    m = 15.4g

    I know it's already been sorted out, but the more ways I see a problem for example, the easier it is to understand.

    Sorry you're right. I mis typed in my calculator.

    Now you times 1000kg by 1000 to get grams.

    Do that and get the mass, now divide it by the Mr of TNT.

    There is a 2:12 ratio.

    To make it simpler, divide your answer by two, and then times by 12 to get the moles for CO.
    Does that make sense?

    could it not simplify to a 1:6 ratio

    and i get 2.27*10^-4, what will i multiply it with from here

    Or yeah you could do that haha

    (Just as a side note, if you have a weird ratio like 2:3, you can get your moles for e.g. 2.27x10^-4 and then times it by your ratio like this 3/2 as a fraction. This is when you can't simplify)

    Now you would times by 6.
    That will be your new moles for CO.
    Then you just work out the mass from there by multiplying moles with Mr.

    2.27*10^-4)*6=1.362*10^3
    then would i times it by (CO =12+16)???
