    Answer: 2755.2 g of Fe will be produced from 24.6 mol of haematite.

    Explanation:

    The balanced chemical equation is:

    Fe_2O_3+3CO\rightarrow 2Fe+3CO_2  

    According to stoichiometry :

    1 mole of Fe_2O_3 produce = 2 moles of Fe

    Thus 24.6 moles of Fe_2O_3 will produce=\frac{2}{1}\times 24.6=49.2moles  of Fe  

    Mass of Fe=moles\times {\text {Molar mass}}=49.2moles\times 56g/mol=2755.2g

    Thus 2755.2 g of Fe will be produced from 24.6 mol of haematite.
