# Calculate the volume of hydrogen that will be released when magnesium with a mass of 64 g interacts with sulfuric acid.

January 16, 2021 | education

| Magnesium interacts with sulfuric acid. In this case, magnesium sulfate is synthesized and hydrogen gas is released. This reaction is described by the following chemical reaction equation:

Mg + H2SO4 = MgSO4 + H2;

In accordance with the coefficients of the equation, when 1 mol of magnesium is dissolved, 1 mol of gaseous hydrogen is released.

Let’s calculate the chemical amount of magnesium. To do this, divide the available weight of the metal by the weight of 1 mole of metal.

M Mg = 24 grams / mol;

N Mg = 64/24 = 2.667 mol;

The same amount of hydrogen will be synthesized.

Let’s calculate its volume, for this we multiply the amount of substance by the volume of 1 mole of gas (22.4 liters):

V H2 = 2.667 x 22.4 = 59.74 liters;
