(a) Interpretation: The mass of IF required to produce30.0 g of nitrogen triiodide (NI 3 ) should be calculated. Concept Introduction: It is important to recognize that the coefficients in a balanced equation give the relative number of molecules. Because atoms are not changed or destroyed in a chemical reaction one must always balance a chemical reaction. That is, one must choose the coefficients that gives the same number of each type of atoms on both sides, using the smallest set of integers.

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

The mass ofBF3 produced when 30.0 g of nitrogen triiodide (NI3 ) is produced should be calculated.
