How many moles of limestone will be required to produce 5.6g of CaO? [Ca =…

A.
0.20 mol
B.
0.10 mol
C.
1.12 mol
D.
0.56 mol

Correct Answer: Option B
Explanation
CaCO3 → CaO + CO2
CaCO3 = 40 + 12 + 16 * 3 = 100, CaO = 40 + 16 = 56
56gt of CaO was produced by 100g of CaCO3
∴ 5.6g of CaO will produce by
(5.6 * 100)/56 = 10g of CaCO3
moles = mass/molar mass = 10/100 = 0.10m
