How many grams of sodium are needed to produce 5.3 moles of sodium chloride?

molecular formula for sodium chloride = NaClIf the mole (n) for NaCl = 5.3 moles, then the mole of sodium (Na) = 5.3 moles as well. 1 to 1 ratio

mass = moles X molar mass

m = 5.3 x 22.9 = 121.37 grams of sodium in 5.3 moles of sodium chloride
