Directions: Solve each of the following problems. Show work using the factor label
method. Include correct units and significant figures with each answer. Clearly
indicate final answer. Be sure to start with balanced reactions.

(c) How many moles of APM are equivalent to 1000g APM
(d) How many N atoms are in 1500 mol APM
(e) How many grams of MoO3 are equivalent to 25 x1026 APM molecules?

2. Given the following reaction: __Na2S2O3 + __AgBr __NaBr + __Na3[Ag(S2O3)2]

a. How many moles of Na2S2O3 are needed to react completely with 42.7 g of AgBr?
b. What is the mass of NaBr that will be produced from 42.7 g of AgBr?
3. The reaction between BaCl2 and Na2SO4 is shown below:
__BaCl2 + __Na2SO4 →__ NaCl + ___ BaSO4
(a) How many moles of BaCl2 will be required to produce 25.0 moles of NaCl ?
(b) How many grams of NaCl are equivalent to 100 grams of BaCl2?
(c) How many grams of Na2SO4 are necessary for the precipitation of 80.0 grams

4. Lysine is an amino acid which has the following elemental composition: C, H, O, N. In

one experiment, 2.175 g of lysine was combusted to produce 3.94 g of CO2and 1.89 g
H2O. In a separate experiment, 1.873 g of lysine was burned to produce 0.436 g of
NH3. The molar mass of lysine is approximately 150 g/mol. Determine the empirical
and molecular formula of lysine.
5. A 12-gram sample of a smelly compound was tested by combustion analysis. The
products were 21.41 grams of CO2, 14.59 grams of H2O, and 17.51 grams of N2O5.
Further analysis showed that oxygen was NOT present in the molecule. What is the
empirical formula of the compound?

6. For each of the following problems, identify:

a) The limiting reactant (LR) and Excess reactant (ER)
b) The theoretical yield (TY) of the product

4a. What is the volume of hydrogen gas (H2) produced from 20.0 g sodium and 20.0
g of water? Given: __ Na (s) + __ H2O(l) → __ NaOH(aq) + __H2(g)
(Na = 23.0 g/mol NaOH = 40.0 g/mol H2O= 18.0 g/mol H2 = 2.0 g/mol)
Hint: do you remember the molar volume of an ideal gas at STP?

4b. If 2.50 grams of H2SO4 react with 5.00 grams of NaOH, what is the theoretical yield
of water, in grams? Given: __H2SO4(aq) + __NaOH(aq) → __H2O(l) + __Na2SO4(aq)
(H2SO4(aq) = 98.0 g NaOH= 40.0 g)


7. If 57 g of Ca(OH)2 reacts with 46g of HCl: __Ca(OH)2 + __HCl → __CaCl2 + __H2O

(b) How many grams of the other reactant are left over?
(c) How many grams of CaCl2 are formed if the reaction goes to completion?

8. A 3.50 g sample of ammonia is brought to react with 6.0 g of oxygen gas:

__NH3 +__ O2 → __NO + __H2O
(a) Which is the limiting reagent?
(b) How much excess reactant in grams remaining after the reaction has stopped
(c) What is the mass of water produced in the reaction?
(d) What is the percentage yield of the reaction, if the amount of NO formed in 3.825
