Thomas Edison State College General Chemistry I with Labs (CHE-121) Section no.: OL009 Semester and year: May 2015 Written Assignment 4: Chemical Reactions Answer all assigned questions and problems, and show all work. 1. Write the (a) balanced equation for the formation of liquid water from hydrogen and oxygen gas, and use it to explain the following terms: (b) chemical reaction, (c) reactant, (d) product. (12 points) (a) 2H 2 + O 2 2H 2 O (b) Chemical reaction: The chemical reaction is the rearrangement of atoms into different combinations, but exact combinations in which new substances forms have different properties than the original substances. In this equation energy is released in the form of heat. The Hydrogen gas and Oxygen gas combine to form liquid water. (c) Reactants: The reactants are the starting substances Hydrogen and Oxygen. They are both elements and both have atomicity 2. This means that a molecule of Hydrogen has 2 atoms and a molecule of Oxygen has 2 atoms. (d) Product: The new substance formed is water. The compound form is H 2 O. Water is a covalent bond. In every molecule of water 2 Hydrogen atoms are sharing their total of 2 electrons with Oxygen, which has 6 electrons in its outermost shell. 2. Balance the following equations: (18 points) a. 2 C + O 2 2 CO b. 2 CO + O 2 2 CO 2 c. 2 Na + 2 H 2 O → H 2 + 2 NaOH d. Zn + 2 HCl → ZnCl 2 + H 2 e. 2 NaOH + H 2 SO 4 2 H 2 O + Na 2 SO 4 f. 2 NH 3 + 3 CuO → 3 Cu + N 2 + 3 H 2 O 1 Copyright © 2014 by Thomas Edison State College. All rights reserved.

3. Calculate the mass in grams of iodine (I 2 ) that will react completely with 20.4 g of aluminum (Al) to form aluminum iodide (AlI 3 ). (5 points) 2Al + 3I 2 2AII 3 Al (# of moles reacting) No of moles = mass/molar mass = 20.4/26.98 =0.756 2AI + 3AII 3 2AII 3 2(0.756) of Al reacts with 3(0.756) moles of Iodine moles of Iodine = 3(0.756) = 2.268 moles Mass of Iodine = moles x molar mass =2.268 x 126.9

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
