School: New York University  Dear student,Please find enclosed a doc file with a detailed explanation of the solutions to the 5 questions.

1. In the following reaction: Fe2O3 + 3C → 2Fe + 3CO, how many grams of C
are needed to react with 16.5 grams of Fe2O3?
In order to solve this question you need to focus on the concept of stoichiometry. Thus,
according to the coefficients in the balanced equation you can easily see that 1 mol of
Fe2O3 reacts with 3 moles of carbon. Since this proportion must be kept constant we
can use it to calculate the amount of carbon given to react with a specific amount of
Fe2O3 (16.5 grams in this case).
The last thing that you need to consider is the relationship between moles and grams.
Thus, the number of moles of any compound are calculated by dividing its mass by the
molar weight (the mass of 1 mole of compound). This molar weight is calculated as the
sum of the weights for each single atom present in the molecule. To calculate them,
you should check up the atomic weights of iron (Fe, 56 g/mol), carbon (C, 12 g/mol)
and oxygen (O, 15 g/mol) in a periodic table.
Taking this into account, the solution is calculated as:
