Chemistry Problems

1. The following reaction occurs:
CaCO3 + 2H- -> Ca2+ + CO2 +H2O

If a 25gm sample of calcium carbonate is added to a 75.5 ml HCl (density = 1.125gm/cm3, 26% HCl by mass), calculate the molarity of the HCL remaining in solution (if any) after the reaction is complete. Assume no volume change.

2. A sample of cocaine, C17H21O4N, is diluted with sugar C12H22O11. When a 1.00mg sample of this mixture is burned, 1.00ml of carbon dioxide (density 1.8gm/l) is formed. What is the percentage of cocaine in the mixture?

3. NH4ClO4 is used in a space shuttle along with aluminum metal. The products of the reaction are aluminum oxide, aluminum chloride, NO, and steam. The reaction mixture contains 5.75gm of Al and 7.32gm of NH4ClO4.

a. What is the theoretical yield of the Aluminum chloride? Note that not all of the chloride comes from NH4ClO4.
b. If 1.87gm of Aluminum chloride is formed, what is the percent yield?
