Textbook Problem

The equation for the reaction of phosphorus and chlorine is P4(s) + 6 Cl2(g) → 4 PCl3(). If you use 8000 molecules of P4, in this reaction how many molecules of C12 are required to consume the P4 completely?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Number of molecules of chlorine required to consume the P4 completely when using 8000 moles of P4 has to be determined.

Concept Introduction:

The law of conservation of mass states that no atoms can be created or destroyed in a chemical reaction, therefore, the number of atoms present in the reactants is equal to the number of atoms present in the products.

Explanation

Totally, 8000 molecule of phosphorous is used for the formation of product, therefore the stoichiometric form of the reaction is given below,

From the equation,

1P4 8000 molecule is r
