    hmm, @Abhisar you'll be my second choice, any time to help with simple a simple mole ratio? c:

    I just need help turning this Mg(s) + 2 HCl(aq) -> H2(g) + MgCl2(aq) into a mole ratio between H2/Mg 0.034 grams of Mg 0.0014 moles H2

    0.034 grams of Mg is what you have, and 0.0014 moles of H2 are produced? what are you being asked to do? and what information does the question give you

    Let's see, this is the question "If magnesium was the limiting reactant in this lab, calculate the theoretical yield of the gaseous product. Show all steps of your calculation."

    PV = nRT P = partial pressure H2 = 1.07 atm V = volume = 30 ml = 0.030 L n = moles = ? moles R = gas constant = 0.082057 L atm moles^-1 k^-1 T = temp in Kelvin = 24 deg C + 273.15 = 297.15 K n = PV / RT = 1.07 atm * 0.032 L / (0.082057 * 297.15 K) = 0.0014 moles H2 thiiiis might help

    (0.034g /24.03 Mg) * (2.02 g/moles H2) = 0.0028g I have this, but I just need a mole ratio with H2/Mg

    ok, so you know magnesium is the limiting reagent so you set it up like this: you need to figure out how much H2 was produced based off the stoichiometry this is theoretical yield. First find how many moles of magnesium you have \[Grams magnesium* \frac{ 1 mol }{ 24.0g} \] then multiply this by the molar ratio and that's how much hydrogen gas you get. \[Moles of magnesium * (\frac{ hydrogen gas }{ magnesium } = moles h2 \] what you have is correct; the molar ratio of magnesium to hydrogen gas in that equation is 1:1

    (0.034g /24.03 Mg) * (2.02 g/moles H2) = 0.0028g I have this, but I just need a mole ratio with H2/Mg so the number of moles of magnesium = #moles of hydrogen gas again what you did is correct the molar ratio is 1:1

    FYI when they say theoretical they mean what you get from the stoichiometry

    Sometimes theoretical may not equal to what you get when you do the experiment; actually... if it is that's a pretty damned good experiment.. side reactions, and other factors can reduce your experimental value.

    Well, I'll pretend that this is a good experiment xD it's all virtual now, would be nice to see what this was actually like in person xD

    actually, I got this "Using grams of Mg used in the lab, calculate theoretical yield of the moles of Hydrogen gas. Use the mole ratio between H2/Mg to finish your work. Molar mass is not used here. " from my teacher. doing what I did, it basically came out to If magnesium was the limiting reactant in this lab, calculate the theoretical yield of the gaseous product. Show all steps of your calculation. (0.034g /24.03 Mg) * (2.02 g/moles H2) = 0.0028g = Actual yield Ratio of H2/Mg = 1:1 (0.034g /24.03 Mg) * (1 mole H2/1 mole Mg) = 0.0014 moles = Theoretical Yield Determine the percent yield of this reaction, showing all steps of your calculation. % yield = actual yield / theoretical yield x 100 / 1 0.0028 /0.0014 = 2 * 100/1 = 200% which seems pretty wrong, it was 0.0014/0.0028 at first but I found out that (0.034g /24.03 Mg) * (2.02 g/moles H2) = 0.0028g was the actual yield and (0.034g /24.03 Mg) * (1 mole H2/1 mole Mg) = 0.0014 moles would be the theoretical. And this is why I came here for help, it knew that the ratio was too simple and I needed more

    @Zale101 could you verify this? Determine the percent yield of this reaction, showing all steps of your calculation. % yield = actual yield / theoretical yield x 100 / 1 0.0028 /0.0014 = 2 * 100/1 = 200%
