    Zirconium is obtained industrially using the Kroll process. The Kroll process is a pyrometallurgical process used initialy to produce titanium and later developed to produce zirconium. It is a high temperature process that combines zirconium (IV) chloride with magnesium metal to produce zirconium metal and magnesium chloride via a single displacement reaction. Calculate the Mass in kilograms of zirconium obtainable from 1.50 metric tons of magnesium.
