A 0.250-g sample of a magnesium-aluminum alloy dissolves completely in an excess of HCl (aq). When the liberated \(\sf H_2~(g)\) is collected over water at 29 ∘C and 752 torr, the volume is found to be 319 mL . The vapor pressure of water at 29 ∘C is 30.0 torr. What is the mass percentage of aluminum in this alloy?

So then I guess I take the \(\sf n_{H_2}\) and I plug it back into my formula to find the total moles of \(\sf H_2\)

\[\sf n_{H_2} = 0.0103+0.0145y\]\[\sf 0.0122 =0.0103+ 0.0145y\] \[\sf y=0.13\]\[\sf n_{H_2} = 0.0103 + 0.0145(0.13) =0.012~mol~H_2\] \[\sf 0.012 ~mol~H_2~\times~\frac{2~mol~Al}{3~mol~H_2}~\times~\frac{26.98~g~Al}{1~mol~Al} =0.22~g~Al\]\[\sf \boxed{\color{red}{\%~Al = \frac{0.22~g~Al}{0.250~g~comp}~\times ~100\% = 0.0088\%}}\]

I don't think this is right.

Oh, the answer : \[\sf \%~Al = 53.1 ~\%\]

Ok, my error has to do with the equation of \(\sf n\)
