Copper (II) sulfate (CuSO4) can be used to control algae growth. Aqueous CuSO4 solutions that come in contact with the surface of galvanized (zinc-plated) steel pails undergo the following reaction: CuSO4(aq) + Zn(s) ---> Cu(s)+ ZnSO4 (aq) How many grams of zinc would react with 454 g (1 lb) of CuSO4 (159.61 g/mol) ?
