What is AlCl3?
Asked in Elements and Compounds
What is the maximum mass of aluminum chloride that can be formed when reacting 22.0 of aluminum with 27.0 of chlorine?
This equation shows how much AlCl3 can be produced with 22.0g of Al. 22.0g Al x (1 mol Al/26.98g) x (2 mol AlCl3/2mol Al) x (133.34 g/1 mol AlCl3) = 108.66g AlCl3 This equation shows how much AlCl3 can be produced with 27.0g of Cl2. 27.0g Cl2 x (1 mol Cl2/70.91g) x (2mol AlCl3/3 mol Cl2) x (133.34g/1 mol AlCl3) = 33.87g AlCl3 This shows that chlorine is the limiting reactant. Only 33.87 grams of AlCl3 can be produced before the chlorine will run out. Using significant figures, the answer is 33.8g of AlCl3
