The carbon dioxide that is exhaled by astronauts who are on a space shuttle is scrubbed by pumping the air through canisters of lithium hydroxide, LiOH. The chemical equation for this reaction is:
2LiOH + CO2 --> Li2CO3 + H2O
What mass of carbon dioxide can 1.00 kg of lithium hydroxide absorb?
Number of Atoms Molar Mass Total Mass
2Li 2(6.9 g/mol) 13.8 g/mol
2O 2(16.0 g/mol 32.0 ...
The solution provides detailed instructions for the problem.
