Mole Sum

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The reaction between aluminium powder and anhydrous barium nitrate is used as the propellant in some fireworks. The metal oxides and nitrogen are the only products. Which volume of nitrogen, measured under room conditions, is produced when 0.783 g of anhydrous barium nitrate reacts with an excess of aluminium?

    2. Relevant equations
    8Al + 6BaNO3 ---> 4Al2O3 + 6BaO + 3N2

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Mr of BaNO3= 137.3 + 14+ (16x 3)
    =199.3
    Moles in 0.783g = 0.783/199.3
    6 moles of barium nitrate gives 3 moles of nitrogen gas
    so 2 moles give 1 mole of N2 gas
    so moles of N2 gas: 0.783/199.3*2
    Volume= moles * 24000
    = 47.145 cm^3
    But my answer is wrong.

    The chemical formula for barium nitrate is ##\text{Ba(NO}_3)_2##.

    Ohhh, thank you!

    10Al + 3Ba(NO3)2 ---> 5Al2O3 + 3 BaO + 3N2
