Aluminum, silicon, and oxygen form minerals known as aluminosilicates. How many moles of aluminum are in: 4.05  moles of pyrophyllite, Al2Si4O10(OH)2

check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1


Moles of pyrophyllite, Al2Si4O10(OH)2 = 4.05 mol

In 1 mole of pyrophyllite, Al2Si4O10(OH)2 there are 2 moles of aluminium (Al).

Therefore, moles of aluminium in 4.05 mol...

1 mol of Al2Si4O10(OH)2 contains
2 mol of Al
2 mol
:. 4.05 mol Al2Si4O10(OH)2 contains
x 4.05 mol
1 mol
= 8.1 mol
