How many moles of aluminium chloride must decompose in order to form 18.3 g of aluminium?
2 AlCl3 → 2 Al + 3 Cl2
We see that 2 moles of aluminum chloride produce 2 moles of aluminum. Molar mass of aluminum is 27 g/mol, meaning that 2 moles of aluminum chloride produce 2 moles or 54 g (2 x 27 g) of aluminum.
There are two ways we can approach this problem, both are correct and will give the same solution in the end.
a) We make a proportion - 2 moles of AlCl3 : 54 g of Al = X : 18.3 g of Al...
