Calculation steps :
S1 Write a balanced equation
S2 Write the information from the question above the equation
S3 Write information from the chemical equation below the equation
(information about the number of moles of reactants/products)
S4 Change the information in S2 into moles by using the
method shown in the chart.
S5 Use the relationship between number of moles of substance
involved in S3 to find the answer

Exercise :

1) Zn + 2HCl → ZnCl2 + H2 ,
Calculate the mass of zinc required to react with excess hydrochloric acid to
produce 6dm3 hydrogen gas at room conditions.
[ RAM Zn= 65 , Cl = 35.5 , molar volume :24 dm3mol-1 at room condition.]

?g 6 dm3
Zn + 2HCl → ZnCl 2 + H2
1 mol 1 mol

## Mass of Zn = 0.25 mol x 65 gmol -1 = 16.25 g

2) 4K + O 2 → 2 K 2O
Calculate the mass of potassium required to produce 23.5 g of potassium oxide.
[RAM K= 39 , O= 16]

?g 23.5 g
4K + O2 → 2 K2O

4 mol 2 mol

## Mass of K = 0.5 mol x 39gmol- = 19.5 g

3) H2O2 → H2O + O2
i) Balance the equation above.
ii) Calculate the number of moles H2O2 that decomposes if 11.2 dm3
oxygen gas is colleted at STP.
(RAM: H,1: O,16,Molar volume :22.4dm3 mol-1 at STP
? Mol 11.2 dm3
2H2O2 → 2H2O + O2

2 mol 1 mol

## 0.5 mol O2 : 1 mol H2O2

4) 8.0 g of copper (ll) oxide powder is added to excess dilute nitric acid and heated.
Calculate the mass of Copper (ll) nitrate produced.
(JAR: N=14, O=16, Cu=64)

## Mass of Cu(NO3 )2 = 0.1mol x 188 gmol-1= 18.8 g

5) 100 cm3 0.2 mol dm-3 hydrochloric acid is reacted with powdered magnesium until
excess. Calculate the volume of hydrogen gas released at room temperature.
( 1 mol of gas occupies the volume of 24 dm3mol-1 at room conditions)

## From the equation :

2 mol HCl : 1 mol H2

## Volume of H2 = 0.01 mol x 24 dm3mol-1 = 0.24 dm3

6) 25 cm3 sulfuric acid is needed to neutralize 50 cm31 moldm-3of Potassium
hydroxide solution. Calculate the concentration of sulfuric acid.

V= 25 cm3 V= 50 cm3

## Mol of KOH = 50 x 1 = 0.05 mol

1000
From the equation: 2 mol KOH : 1 mol H2SO4

## Concentration H2SO4 : 25 x M = 0.025

From the Equation 2 mol HCl : 1 mol MgO

## Mass of MgO that has not reacted = 10 -4 = 6 g
