Question

A three-step process for producing molten iron metal from Fe2O3 is:

  1. 3Fe2O3 + CO → 2Fe3O4 + CO2
  2. Fe3O4 + CO → 3FeO + CO2
  3. FeO + CO → Fe + CO2

Assuming that the reactant CO is present in excess and that the yields, respectively, for the three steps are 96.3%, 58.9% and 82.6%, what mass of iron metal would be produced from 410. kg of Fe2O3?
