Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2next work out the mass of the aluminum = 78.3 * 2.7 now from the equation use the relative atomic masses of the elements to find out how much ALCl3 is needed to form 78.3*2.7 grams of Al.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Al = 26.982 Cl = 35.45 so from the equation: 2*26.982 g Al comes from 2*26.982 + 6*35.45 g of AlCl3 next work out how much AlCl3 comes from 1 g of AL then multiply that result by 78.3*2.7
