30 grams hydrogen sulfate (answer)
Hydrogen sulfate is H2SO4
The molar mass is 98.1 g/mol
30 grams x 1mol
= 0.31 mol H2SO4
30 grams x 1mol
x 6.022 x 1023 formula units
= 1.84 x 1023 formula units hydrogen sulfate

Hess Law Example 2 (optional)
Calculate the enthalpy of formation of carbon dioxide from its elements:
C(g) + 2O CO2 (g)
Use the following equations:
H = -250 kJ
H = +720 kJ
CO2 (g) C(s) + O2
H = +390 kJ
Answer-Give it some think time
The Activation Energy represents an Energy Barrier to formation of the
products. Some form of energy must be present to supply this energy in order
for a reaction to occur. It can be a small or a large amount, depending on the
size of th
Germain Henri Hess (1802 - 1850) is important primarily for his
thermochemical studies, which began in 1839; his other work was of less
importance. The key paper was published in 1840. The contributions of Hess
to heat can be summed up in what i
For Exothermic reactions:
