    UF5 + H2O --> UO2F2 + UF4 + HF

    Balancing the reaction, we get

    1) 2UF5 + 2H2O --> UO2F2 + UF4 + 4HF

    a) We see that 2 moles of UF5 react with 2 moles of water to give 1 mole of UF4.

    Number of moles of UF5 = ...

    Solution Summary

    The maximum amount in an equation are given. The expert determine what reactant is left after the reaction stops are given.
