1. If we used 0.0100 moles of K2CO3, how many moles of SrCO3 can be expected to form?
0.01 moles of SrCO₃
In this excersise we need to propose the reaction:
K₂CO₃ + Sr(NO₃)₂ → 2KNO₃ + SrCO₃
As we only have data about the potassium carbonate we assume the strontium nitrite as the excess reactant.
1 mol of K₂CO₃ react to 1 mol of Sr(NO₃)₂ in order to produce 2 moles of potassium nitrite and 1 mol of strontium carbonate.
Ratio is 1:1. In conclussion,
0.01 mol of K₂CO₃ must produce 0.01 moles of SrCO₃
