Calculate the mass of potassium that you need to take to interact with 16 g of bromine.

1. We write down the equation of interaction of potassium with bromine:

2K + Br2 = 2KBr;

2.Calculate the chemical amount of bromine:

n (Br2) = m (Br) 2: M (Br2) = 16: 160 = 0.1 = mol;

3.According to the equation, potassium reacts twice as much, we find its amount:

n (K) = n (Br2) * 2 = 0.1 * 2 = 0.2 mol;

4.calculate the mass of potassium:

m (K) = n (K) * M (K) = 0.2 * 39 = 7.8 g.

Answer: 7.8 g.
