theoretical number of moles of the organic product, C9H8O4?

stoichiometry and balanced equations make it possible to use one piece of information to calculate another. There are countless ways stoichiometry can be used in chemistry and everyday life. Try and see if you can use what you learned to solve the following problems.

1) Why are the following equations not considered balanced?

  1. \(H_2O_{(l)} \rightarrow H_{2(g)} + O_{2(g)}\)
  2. \(Zn_{(s)} + Au^+_{(aq)} \rightarrow Zn^{2+}_{(aq)} + Ag_{(s)}\)

2) Hydrochloric acid reacts with a solid chunk of aluminum to produce hydrogen gas and aluminum ions. Write the balanced chemical equation for this reaction.

3) Given a 10.1M stock solution, how many mL must be added to water to produce 200 mL of 5M solution?

4) If 0.502g of methane gas react with 0.27g of oxygen to produce carbon dioxide and water, what is the limiting reagent and how many moles of water are produced? The unbalanced equation is provided below.

\[CH_{4(g)} + O_{2(g)} \rightarrow CO_{2(g)} + H_2O_{(l)}\]

5) A 0.777g sample of an organic compound is burned completely. It produces 1.42g COand 0.388g H2O. Knowing that all the carbon and hydrogen atoms in CO2 and H2O came from the 0.777g sample, what is the empirical formula of the organic compound?
