Calculate the mass of salt that is formed by the interaction of sodium, 2.3 g and chlorine.

The reaction between chlorine and sodium is described by the following chemical reaction equation:

2Na + Cl2 = 2NaCl;

From one mole of sodium, one mole of sodium chloride is formed.

Determine the molar mass of sodium and sodium chloride:

M Na = 23 grams / mol;

M NaCl = 23 + 35.5 = 58.5 grams / mol;

Let’s determine the amount of substance in 2.3 grams of sodium:

N Na = 2.3 / 23 = 0.1 mol;

Determine the mass of 0.1 mol of sodium chloride:

m NaCl = 0.1 x 58.5 = 5.85 grams;
