Homework Help: Can I Convert Moles Between Products?

  1. Mar 15, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hi! I was assigned a problem for chemistry like this:

    2 A + B → 2 C + 3 D

    It asks to find mol of C if you start with 0.320 mol D..

    Can I convert between C and D? I know that I can convert between A and B.. but I'm not sure about C and D.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    If I can do that, then it's:

    (0.320 mol D)(2 mol C/3 mol D)= 0.213 mol C

    Your calculations are correct, but I don't like wording of the problem. It should be more like "how much C is produced together with 0.320 moles of D, if the reaction equation is..."

    Oh, so its possible. :D Thanks! Sorry if I worded it weirdly.. I can't remember the exact words from the problem..
