How many grams of KCl will be formed from 5.5 grams of KClO3?
- Old Science GuyLv 72 months ago
we can use a simple mass ratio based on formula weights
KCl / KClO3 = 74.55 / 122.55 = X / 5.5
solve for X
X = 3.3 g to 2 sig figs
When you get a good response,

2KClO3 ---> 2KCl + 3O2
2 moles of KClO3 gives 2 moles of KCl
hence 147/(122) moles of KClO3 will give = 5.5g/122g moles of KCL = .045 moles
KCl ( in grams) = .045 * 74 = 3.33 gm
Hence 3.33 gm of KCl is produced.
