I need some help on how to find out how many grams of each substance i need to make gun powder for my Chemisty class. I have the equation its 2KNO3+3C+S -->3CO2 + K2S+ N2 I know that there are 10 grams but i have to figure out how many grams are for each substance. I'd just like someone point me in the right direction. I'm not sure what to do first. I know i need to use stoikiometry to figure it out. but if someone could just give me a little advice on what to do first. i would appreciate it a lot. thank you. as far as i know i have balanced the equation correctly but if someone sees a mistake, let me know please. thanks again.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
