##### Finding the moles of HCL when given 0.300 moles of Chlorine

 Chemistry Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

How many moles of hydrochloric acid will be formed upon the complete reaction of 0.300moles Chlorine gas with excess water?

chemical equation

6 CL + 3 H2O = 5 HCL + HCLO3

if 6CL=0.300 MOLES

Therefore 5 HCL=5/6*0.300moles

=0.25moles of hydrochloric acid

I understand how to balance the formula but home assignment stated you were wrong they did 0.300 x5molh20/3molcl2=0.500

0.300 mol Cl2 5 mol HCl...=...0.500 mol HCl

3 mol Cl2

the baseline in the equation is to first balance the equation. Then you correlate the ratios obtained while balancing the equations.

chlorine reacts completely in this equation

In this case, mole ratio of Cl: hcl=6:5 therefore, the moles of chlorine would be

5/6*0.3 moles=0.25 moles
