Step 1

Given data

Mass of calcium = 24.0g

Mass of calcium hydroxide= 5.0g

Step 2

Moles of Calcium

Step 3

According to the... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose1 mole of Ca gives 1 mole of Ca(OH) 0.6 moles of Ca would give 0.6 moles of Ca (OH) mass of Ca (OHmoles x molar mass = 0.6 mol x 74g 44.4g fullscreen
