Step 1

Iron can be converted to Fe2O3 according to the given reaction. Amount of heat (in kJ) required to convert 10.5 g of iron into Fe2O3 is to be calculated.

Step 2

Calculate the moles of Fe in 10.5 g of iron-

As per the balanced equation, 2 moles of Fe needs 26.8 KJ of heat to convert to Fe2O3.

Thus, first convert 10.5 g of Fe into moles of Fe.

Step 3

Calculate the amount of heat (in kJ) required to convert 0....
