Step 1

The balanced chemical reaction is as follows,

Step 2

Next, the given grams of reactant are converted into moles using mass and moles conversion. help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseMass Moles Molar mass 15.6×10° g Al,O, Moles 101.9614 g/mol =152.9 moles 57.4x10° g NaOH Moles 39.9971g / mol = 1435moles 57.4×10° g HF Moles = 20.0064 g/mol = 2869.1 moles fullscreen
Step 3

Observing the balanced chemical equation clearly shows that 1 mole of Al2O3 requires 6 moles of NaOH and 12 moles of HF. Therefore, 152.9 moles of Al2O3 requires 917.4 NaOH and 1834.8 HF moles. Hence, the limtin... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose1 mole of Al,0, =2 moles of cryolite Mass = Moles × Molar mass =(152.9x2)x 209.94 g/mol =64199.652 g =64.2 kg of cryolite fullscreen
