Iron Production in a Reaction

How many grams of iron can be produced from 3.50 Kg FeO3 from the following reaction
FeO3(s) + 3CO (g)-------->2Fe (s) = 3CO2 (g)

Solution Preview

Molecular mass of Fe2O3 = 56*2 + 16*3 = 160g
Atomic mass of Fe is ...

Solution Summary

This solution determines the amount of iron produced by finding the molar mass of Fe2O3 and predicting how much 3.5kg of Fe2O3 can yield.
