Working with balanced chemical reactions

7) Which would be used up first? How many grams of Cl2 will be produced?
TiO2 + HCl = TiCl2 + Cl2 + H2O if 0.86 mole of TiO2 and 1.5 lbs of HCl react

Solution Preview

Our balanced reaction is,

TiO2 + 4HCl ==> TiCl2 + Cl2 + 2H2O

That is 1 mole TiO2 requires 4 moles of HCL to produce 1 mole of Cl2

Mol wt of TiO2 = 79.9 g/mole
Mol wt ...
