Does the mass of iron that can be obtained from iron oxide (+3) weighing 320kg equal?

In this task you will need to determine the mass of iron that was formed as a result of the reaction.

2Fe2O3 = 4Fe + 3O2.

Determine the molar mass of iron oxide.
M (Fe2O3) = 56 * 2 + 16 * 3 = 160 g / mol.
Next, we determine the molar mass of iron.
M (Fe) = 56 g / mol.
Let’s make a proportion.
320 kg = 320,000 g.
320,000 g of iron oxide – x g of iron.
160 * 2 g / mol – 56 * 4 g / mol.
Let’s define x.
X = 56 * 4 * 320,000 / (160 * 2) = 224,000 g or 224 kg.
This means that 224 kg of iron is obtained.
Answer: the mass of the iron obtained is 224 kg.
