Clathrate compounds contain small molecules like water in them. Methane clathrate (methane hydrate) has 1 mole of methane for 5.75 moles of water. Calculate the mass of methane released on heating of 1 kg of a clathrate deposit that contains 1% by weight of the deposit is the hydrate and remaining 99% minerals.
Hydrate Means WATER 1% of deposit is hydrate(Water) thus 1/100 x 1000g = 10g is the hydrate(H2O) Moles of water = mass /... View the full answer
