Homework Help: Moles of H2 from h20

  1. Nov 4, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Suppose you have 6 moles of H20. You want to calculate how many moles of H2 you have. how many is it?

    2. Relevant equations

    Avagradro's number: 6.02*10^{23}



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I got to the equation:
    [itex]2H_2+O_2\rightarrow 2H_2O[/itex]
    I kind of figured out that since H is diatonic, we need to do that^.

    Although from here I don't know how to proceed.
