If you had excess aluminum, how many moles if aluminum chloride could be produced from 27.0 g of chlorine gas, Cl2?


Expert Answer

Step 1


Mass of Cl = 27.0g

Molar mass of chlorine atom, Cl = 35.45

Molar mass of chlorine molecule, Cl2, MW = 2*35.45 = 70.9gm/mol

Balanced chemical equation:

2Al(s) + 3Cl2(g) ---> 2AlCl3(s)

As per the balanced chemical equation

3 x 70.9 g of C...
