When heated, KC10, decomposes into KCl and O,. → 2 KCl + 30, 2 KC1O, If this reaction produced 57.9 g KCl, how many grams of O, were produced? g O2 mass:


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given information:

Mass of KCl produced = 57.9 g

Step 2

The chemical equation for decomposition of KClO3 is represented as follows:
