204 Chapter Five Gases Figure 5.13 The production of oxygen by thermal decomposition of KCI0 3 . The Mn02 is mixed with the KCI0 3 to make the reaction faster. Oxygen plus water vapor' -, EXAMPLE 5.18 A sample of solid potassium chlorate (KCI0 3 ) was heated in a test tube (see Fig. 5.13) and decomposed by the following reaction: 2KCI0 3 (s) ----+ 2KCl(s) + 30 2 (g) The oxygen produced was collected by displacement of water at 22°C at a total pressure of 754 torr. The volume of the gas collected was 0.650 L, and the vapor pressure of wa- ter at 22°C is 21 torr. Calculate the partial pressure of O 2 in the gas collected and the mass of KCl0 3 in the sample that was decomposed.
