nope you ALWAYS use moles
anonymous
  • anonymous
OK
aaronq
  • aaronq
so to solve this problem: (1) balance the reaction (2) convert grams of reactants to moles of reactants ...moles=mass/molar mass (3) determine limiting reactant (whichever one you have less of will determine how much product you can make) (4) use the coefficients from the balanced equation to find how many moles of product you make (5) convert to grams ...again using n=m/M

do these and ill help you if you get stuck

im stuck...im trying to convert the grams of the reactant to moles of reactant but im confused
aaronq
  • aaronq
okay, so you know how many grams you have .. do you know each reactants molar mass?
anonymous
  • anonymous
molar mass of C=12.011?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Molar mass of CS2=76.141
aaronq
  • aaronq
okay so use the formula n=m/M moles = mass / molar mass find the number of moles ie. divide the mass by the molar mass
aaronq
  • aaronq
so for carbon m=(8.8g)/(12g/mol) = 0.733 mol
