The molar mass of I2 is 253.80 g/mol, and the molar mass of NI3 is 394.71 g/mol. How many moles of I2 will form 3.58 g of NI3?
To answer the problem above first we need to find the difference of molar mass of NI3 from I2, 394.71 g/mol - 253.80 g/mol = 140.91 g/mol. Knowing the molar mass of the difference of NI3 from I2, in equation mass (g) / moles (mol) = molar mass, then we substitute. 3.58g / moles = 140.91 g/mol. moles = 3.58 / 140.91 = 0.025 moles.
