| **Calculate the volume of hydrogen obtained by the interaction of 14.4 zinc containing 10% impurities with an excess of hydrochloric acid.**

Given:

m (Zn) = 14.4 g

ω approx. = 10%

To find:

V (H2) -?

Decision:

1) Write the reaction equation:

Zn + 2HCl => ZnCl2 + H2 ↑;

2) Find the mass fraction of Zn without impurities:

ω clean. (Zn) = 100% – ω approx. = 100% – 10% = 90%;

3) Find the mass Zn:

m clean (Zn) = ω (Zn) * m (Zn) / 100% = 90% * 14.4 / 100% = 12.96 g;

4) Find the amount of substance Zn:

n (Zn) = m (Zn) / Mr (Zn) = 12.96 / 65 = 0.2 mol;

5) Find the amount of substance H2:

n (H2) = n (Zn) = 0.2 mol;

6) Find the volume H2:

V (H2) = n (H2) * Vm = 0.2 * 22.4 = 4.48 liters.

Answer: The volume of H2 is 4.48 liters.
