A couple of chem problems

  • #1
Consider this eq, It is balanced:
KCN+HCl=KCl+HCN

If a sample of 0.140g of KCN is treated with an excess of HCl, calculate the amount of HCN formed, in grams:

I just want to know if I did this right

0.140g KCN/65g KCN = x/27g HCN
and I got .058 g


Another probem:
Ammonium Nitrate decomposes to form n2o and h20, write a balanced eq. How many grams of n20 are formed if 0.46moles of Ammonium Nitrate is used in the reaction.

I did:
36.8 g NH4NO3/ 80g NH4NO3= x/44g N2O

I went ahead and converted mol to g in the beginning.

I got 20.24g N2O


One more question, :Calculate the number of moles of H3PO4 that will react with 5.55 mol of Ba(OH)2 to form Ba(H2PO4)2 and water

Now, I set up a mole ratios right?

One more question:

2Al+3FeO=3Fe+Al2O3

When I am doing Mass to Mass ratio, I would do #g Al/ molecular weight Al x 2

for example if I am reacting 468g Al, I put it over 54g Al, not just 27.

I hope that makes sense.
