Homework Help: Help with calculation

  1. Sep 24, 2008 #1
    Need help to solve a chem question:

    1.0 g of Iron metal reacts with 2.0 g of chlorine gas to make iron (III) chloride, FeCl3.

    (a) Write a balanced equation for this reaction.
    (b) Which of the reactants is present in excess ?
    (c) What mass of this reactant will be left over at the end of the reaction ? (7 marks)

    I know this is not too complicated but just can't get started.
